Tumblr User Explains What Invisible Poverty Looks To His Ignorant Rich Friend

What is invisible poverty?

Well many of us think that poverty looks like dirty kids with no shoes on and fleas engulfing them. While that is a reality for some, many go through what is known as invisible poverty. These people have regular clothes, normal jobs, and ordinary houses. They look just like any other suburban family because their misery can’t really be “seen.”

However, this does not mean that it is easy to escape this situation. There are times when they can’t put food on the table or even pay bills for their necessities and just saying ‘why don’t you save?’ doesn’t change that.

This is what one guy tried to explain to one of his rich friends. It is safe to say that his friend was quite ignorant in this matter. So scroll on below and take a look at how this guy explains invisible poverty.
