(DGIwire) – Are you in better financial shape this holiday season than you were at the end of 2013? If so, you should consider yourself very lucky, because many Americans are not. According to a recent study by Feeding America, a network of 200 food banks, one out of seven Americans relies on food banks to put food on the table. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Labor reports that the percentage of Americans who are employed is about the same as it was during the depths of the last recession, and that the rate of U.S. homeownership has fallen for seven years in a row.
At this point, a record one in eight American men in their prime working years (25 to 54) is not in the labor force, according to statistics released by the Senate Budget Committee, and the number of Americans that are “working part-time involuntarily” has increased by more than 50 percent since the beginning of the last recession, CNNMoney reported recently. Furthermore, as of 2012, one out of every four part-time workers in America was living below the poverty line, according to the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute. A recent study from the Congressional Budget Office reports that approximately 60 percent of all U.S. households get more in transfer payments from the government than they pay in taxes.
