This has been the same method of calculation since 1960, the only changes being caused by inflation. Poverty has many effects on our society such as higher crime rates, low level of education, low paying jobs, child labor, and bad hygiene habits.

The negative attributes outweigh the positive due to the lack of supporting detail from the positive in which helps us better understand that helping people is the right thing to do rather than sitting back and doing nothing but demands that Americans donate every cent of their extra money to help the poor.

Between the years of 1993 and 2007 there was an increase in the aging workforce of 9.3%, which was higher among women, with a 10.4% increase, than men, having a 7.6% increase. These treads are illustrated in the chart below (McMahon 141-142).
