Employment gap between rich, poor widest on record

Rates of unemployment for the lowest-income families - those earning less than $20,000 - have topped 21 percent, nearly matching the rate for all workers during the 1930s Great Depression.

This is really unfortunate if it is true but I feel like there's a facet that is not being uncovered. At least Ohio is doing better.
