Description
 
At St. John's Bread and Life, a soup kitchen in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section
of Brooklyn, more than a thousand people line up for breakfast and lunch five
days a week. During the twelve-year era of welfare reform, William DiFazio
observed the daily lives of poor people at St. John's and throughout New York
City.

In this trenchant and groundbreaking work, DiFazio presents the results of
welfare reform—from ending entitlements to diminished welfare
benefits—through the eyes and voices of those who were most directly affected
by it. Ordinary Poverty concludes with a program to guarantee universal rights
to a living wage as a crucial way to end poverty. Ultimately,

DiFazio articulates the form a true poor people's movement would take—one that
would link the interests of all social movements with the interests of ending
poverty.
