25% ungdomsledighet i USA. Her er DEN 60 Minutes episoden om unger i fattigdom.

16 millioner amerikanske unger lever i fattigdom – flest siden 1962. Anker Scott Pelley dro til Florida, en stat hvor noen har dratt ut proppen av byggingsbransjen.

Hjerteskjærende gjengivelse av 60 Minutes-episoden med hjemløse amerikanere i sine biler:

Pelley: Standing guard all night?

D’Angelo Coates: Yup.

Pelley: D’Angelo, what does a man think about, sitting on a cooler all night with his family in the car next to him?

D’Angelo Coates: At that moment, I guess I feel less than a dad. I guess, I guess I can say or as a husband. Because I’m not able to provide for my family.

Victoria Coates: Going into that car really did something to me. I felt helpless. I felt like I couldn’t help my children.

Pelley: I am willing to bet that the whole time you were in the car you didn’t cry once, did you?

Victoria Coates: Unh-unh.

Pelley: Not in front of these guys.

Pelley: When it came time to put the girls in school, the school must have asked you for an address.

Victoria Coates: Well you have these boxes to choose and you had one that said shelter.

Pelley: You checked the shelter box?

Victoria Coates: Yeah.

Pelley: There was no box for car?

Victoria Coates: No.

Pelley: So you lied to them?

Victoria Coates: Basically.

Pelley: You do what you have to do.

Victoria Coates: There was not an option to take my girls away.
