America's Silent Crisis: The Plight of the Single (Working!) Mother !

As marriage declines among lower-income families, single parents are becoming a new norm.
And that single parent is overwhelmingly a mother with a job !

For decades the number of single-parent families has climbed higher,
with the overwhelming majority of these households led by women.
In 1960, just 5 million children under 18 lived with only their mother.
By 1980 that number had more than doubled.
Today 2019, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation,
19 million children live in single-mother families, up from 17 million in 2000.
In some school districts today, including several in California and Washington,
the majority of families are led by a single mother.

Daylene is hardly the only single mother viewing her financial future in grim terms.
According to The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution,
single-parent families saw their annual earnings plummet twenty percent between 2007 and 2010,
compared to only 5 percent for two-parent families.
Economic survival has gotten harder and harder for these families:
the number of single-parent families in poverty reached 42.3 percent in 2018,
up from 30.9 percent three years earlier.
The District of Columbia, Wyoming and Kansas saw the largest hikes
in the percentage of single mothers dropping below the poverty line during this same period,
according to the National Women's Law Center.
