MAINE CALLING: What Does It Mean to be Poor?

On November 21, 2012, MPBN Radio call-in show, "Maine Calling", aired a show entitled, "What Does It Mean to be Poor?".  It was a good conversation with guests from Preble Street Resource Center, Garrett Martin, Executive Director, Maine Center for Economic Policy, and some excellent callers.  

PLEASE NOTE:  the content below was shamelessly grabbed off the MPBN site - including the Dickensian, "please, sir, may I have some more?" photo which only serves to reinforce stereotypes about poor people, but, hey, no worries, MPBN!  ...everyone does it and you done good by giving visibility to a chronically invisible issue suffered by hundreds of thousands of invisible Mainers & tens of millions of invisible Americans.  For this and all that you do 24/7/365, "come rain, snow, sleet, or dark of night", MPBN, we love you!  & thanks!
