My piece, “Like Father, Like Son,” addresses the idea that financial struggle is generational. It is a cycle that perpetuates itself when struggling families lack the capacity to provide equal opportunities for their offspring who then come up short in the workforce as they develop into adulthood, and follow in their parent’s footsteps. My piece, “Unknown,” speaks to the idea that the working poor doesn’t have a face. It can be anyone at any time. The disadvantages of the economy has rattled every class’s financial security, and being blind to the problem neither solves it nor protects you or your family from becoming a part of it.
