OECD releases study on the poverty wealth gap

The poverty wealth gap is growing in the majority of the 30 OECD countries. In fact, two thirds of the countries have seen an increase in poverty and income disparity.

Poverty is having its largest impact on young people and families with children. Read more about the report here.
