According to new research on America's world-leading economic inequality, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) reported that in 2014, the exceptionally rich United States has the distinction of the highest proportion of low-paying jobs among every developed nation in the world. The report is just in time for Republicans on the campaign trail to boast to their supporters that America is number one in having over a quarter of its workforce laboring for poverty wages.
While the wealthiest 1% of Americans' fortunes increase dramatically, millions of Americans are going hungry and Republicans plan to make the hunger crisis much worse.
There are plenty of things for all Americans to be thankful for, but sadly, a substantial segment of the population has little reason to be grateful on this official "day of thanksgiving."
There are millions of Americans who will seek out real Easter eggs to feed their children, wait for their $189 of monthly food stamps, and wonder how they will replace school lunches this summer.
