Millions of Americans don't earn enough money to pay for decent housing food health care and education. Increasingly families and young people aren't doing better than their parents and grandparents before them. In fact they're doing worse. And women and minorities earn less than white men. The American Dream is harder to achieve than ever before. Meanwhile the rich keep getting richer. Many Americans are angry about economic inequality and many are working on solutions. Readers will learn how state and local governments businesses and ordinary citizens—including young people—are fighting to close the gap between rich and poor to preserve the promises of American democracy and to give everyone a fair shot at the American Dream.
