The American economic recovery hasn’t just been uneven, it’s been bifurcated. Where economy is good, it is very good, and getting better. Where the economy was bad, it is staying bad, and may not improve.
“…, the most prosperous 10% of zip codes saw jobs grow 17.4% and had business establishments in their neighborhoods climb by 8.8%.” – Fusion
The poorer areas saw a 13% job loss and more than 10% of businesses close. Depending on where Americans live, they see a different reality from what is being reported.

On average, the American economy is growing, but the consequences of poverty are also growing for about 50,000,000 Americans.
