In California one quarter of young children live in poverty it affect its education and economic well being. Latinos and young immigrants or single parents are most likely to be poor.
`I chose the topic of poverty on young people in the Bay Area and it effects for my catone because it is a problem that is affecting so many young and children all around the Bay Area and if this keep on going we would have a really bad generation in the future struggling with so much more poverty.
From a website called Geography of Child Poverty in California I learned that In California one quarter of young children live in the poverty. Poverty affects children’s education and economic well-being, most of the children in poverty have a least one parent that work but most of the times both parents do work. Latinos and young immigrants or single parents are more likely to be poor.
In the second source a academic source called U N A U T H O R I Z E D A N D U N I N S U R E D It talked about that Immigrants represent a large part of the East Oakland population which is 17 percent. Thirty five of the population in the East Oakland have a least one parent immigrant 79 percent of whom are US citizens. Most of the immigrants in the East Oakland are working as poor class citizens. in addition, in my third source a news article named The Bay Area.
In one of my source a news article from SFGATE The Bay Area cities and neighborhoods with the most and least child poverty it showed me that South central Oakland is one with the most poverty, 47 percent of young people live in poverty (almost all youngsters), but the East is where the lowest rate of poverty is, only 5 percent in Piedmont. 40 percent of the poor families spend more than half of their incomes on housing costs.
One short film from CBS SF Feds: $100,000 ‘Low Income’ In Parts Of Bay AreaShowed me that the Bay area has the most low incomes while the pay for household is too high. This film also say that we are victims of our own success because there were 13,000 jobs created in the Bay Area but because of that the household is going up. In additions, in the Bay.
If you could help me leaving your comments and feedbacks I would really appreciate it thanks.
