On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’re discussing Growing Up Poor in America, a new FRONTLINE documentary that tells the story of three families who are struggling to make ends meet. Close to 13 million children in the US live in poverty.
Later in the show, we are discussing the for-profit nursing home industry and the spread of COVID at the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington.
