We Need a Concrete Jobs Agenda to Reduce Chronic Black Poverty

We Need a Concrete Jobs Agenda to Reduce Chronic Black Poverty
- For example, in 2013, UNICEF ranked the U.S. child poverty rate 33rd out of 41 rich countries. We have a child poverty rate twice that of Australia, three times that of Ireland, four times that of Denmark, and more than five times that of Finland—the country with the lowest ranking. It is shameful that a country as rich as ours performs so poorly. And, of course, the black poverty rate in the U.S. is much worse than the overall average used for the UNICEF ranking.
