Friday Round-up: this week in the news
- Census data shows that DC’s poverty rate is the third highest in the nation: http://huff.to/pwbsxW. Maybe that has something to do with falling incomes across the country (http://bit.ly/nTM6md) or rising unemployment in the area (http://wapo.st/qdeQoX)?
- Study shows that people are more willing to report mental illness, but fewer are seeking treatment: http://abcn.ws/njdiTd
- More legal protection for the unemployed on the horizon? http://bit.ly/oMpHrM
