Poor Kids of America

In the United States child poverty has reached record levels, with over 16 million children now affected nationwide. One in twelve americans are now jobless and many children are growing up with little hope of long term employment. With middle class families loosing their homes sometimes with very short notice, more and more pressure is being piled onto charitable causes such as food banks and shelters.

In this documentary BBC ask three children to express their views on what life in modern America is really all about these days.
