Unfortunately, the economical recession which started during 2008 has been a major aspect in growing the rates of the extremely poor. The rate where people grow to be poor within the U.S. has risen quicker than every other comparable period as being the earlier 1980's. Today 15.4 million Americans live in intense poverty. This number is the biggest ever recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau. Intense lower income for a family of four in the U.S. means that their cash income is about $30 each day or much less.

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is October Seventeen

Beyond the U.S. borders the issue is more severe. Presently there are approximately 3 billion individuals in the developing world attempting to survive less than $2 each day.
