Homelessness, hunger climbing in U.S. cities, mayors' survey says
Matt PearceAlthough the jobless rate is at its lowest level in five years and the stock market has surpassed its pre-recession high, the economic gains have not reached many poor urban residents, and 2014 could be even worse, a new survey said Wednesday.
Homelessness and hunger have increased and are expected to keep rising in many cities next year, according to the latest U.S. Conference of Mayors survey of 25 large and midsized metro areas.
Last year's national poverty rate of 15% is still near the Great Recession’s high of 15.1%, according to U.S. Census figures.
