The Poverty Line
Client / Client contact information:
Why the federal poverty line doesn’t begin to tell the story of poverty in the U.S.
Background / Overview:
Recently released Census Bureau data show that more than 37 million people in America lived at or below the federal poverty line in 2020. That’s 11.4% of the population, and a full percentage point higher than what it was in 2019.
What is the objective, the purpose of the art piece?
The federal poverty line needs to be adjusted to reflect reality — and be based on the actual costs of housing, food, childcare, healthcare, transportation and other necessities of daily life in various regions of the United States.
What do we want to say?
Jobs with low wages, unreliable hours and a lack of benefits have come to dominate the U.S. economic landscape for workers and their families. The pandemic compounded this problem for low-wage workers whose work cannot be done remotely. In 2020, nearly 8 million low-wage workers lost their jobs, while others, such as those in meatpacking industries, were declared “essential” and forced to work in unsafe conditions.
Anyone who will listen
Additional info & insights:
According to available census data, roughly 51% of workers earn less than $35,000 per year, which is only slightly above the federal poverty line for a family of four — and less than they need to be able to afford a modest two-bedroom apartment. A recent survey found that, on average, a modest two-bedroom apartment at the national average fair market rent of $1,061 required an hourly wage of $20.40. This is an annual salary of $42,432.
