It doesn't end at employment.

The 10 States and 10 Jobs With the Most Low-Wage Workers - Atlantic Mobile

The stats presented in the above link just go to show that employment isn't everything. With so many pundits tracking unemployment rates you'd be forgiven for thinking once this goes down everything will be peachy.

Looking at these stats though paints a different picture. The massive amount of people on low and very low incomes goes to show that breaking the poverty cycle is more complex than just increasing employment.

Makes me greatful for what I have and the opportunities I've been given, that's for sure.
