Unemployment Gap Between Rich and Poor Americans at Its Widest

The unemployment rate between the richest and poorest families in America has reached its widest gap on record according to government data, the Associated Press reports. Black workers in households earning less than $20,000 were the most likely to be unemployed, at 48.4 percent. In August, the overall African-American jobless rate climbed from 12.6 to 13.3 percent.
