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.
