American sprawl dragging everyone down into poverty. 1 in 3 households in trouble in Idaho.

News & Observer: "A new report from the United Ways of the Pacific Northwest found that more than one in three households in Idaho can tell a similar story. Adults in those homes are working, sometimes more than one job. Even if they're managing to keep their household incomes above the poverty line, they're not making enough to cover the basic cost of living in their communities.
...The report also found that many jobs are not located near affordable housing. That places a larger burden on public transportation, which also is often not adequate."
