Most Americans Can’t Afford A $500 Emergency
Megan Reynolds

I could take a $500 emergency, but if another emergency of equal or greater expense followed (let’s be real problems and their solutions are often more than the initial expense), then it wouldn’t be long before I was in trouble. THIS is the shiz that I get really annoyed with. We’re all mostly a couple thousand dollars away from being f*cked completely and if we don’t remember that with compassion for those who have less, we’re no better than the orange elite that despise us.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
