  • The Real Horror Stories of Appalachia | Short Documentary
    In 2019, 43 million people in the United States lived below the poverty line, twice as many as it was fifty years before. 1.5 million children were homeless, three times more than during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Entire families are tossed from one place to another to work unstable jobs that barely allow them to survive. In the historically poor Appalachian mining region, people rely on food stamps for food.

    The only reason that the poor are overweight it is cheaper to buy junk food, fruit vegetables and meat costs too. It should be the other way around. Nobody in the Western world should wait around for medical treatment, not like that .😢

      ​@tyleranderson3558 it's not like that everywhere in the US. And there just aren't jobs everywhere. When the only thing your town has is a grocery store and a gas station and you're 4 generations deep, getting out isn't possible or even a thought be consider. Those places don't hire because the whole town applies there. No construction _because there is no money to build._ You having been fortunate doesn't mean everyone is and your arrogance isn't helpful to the situation.

    Wow, that long line and people driving in desperate to seek medical help is heartbreaking.
    In Australia, we have a pretty good public healthcare system, where you pay fairly minimum to see a GP- about US$45 per appointment or if you need a specific healthcare attention at a public hospital , you can go onto a waitlist if it's not emergency.
    But you will be attended to.
    And pretty minimal gov subsidised costs for hospital as well.
    Of course you can opt to have private health insurance cover which gets you seen immediately at hospitals.
    I do feel incredibly empathetic seeing this scene in the US as well as the incredible amounts of drug addiction and homelessness which appears so prevalent in the US now.
    And the disparity of the ultra rich socio economic to the ultra poor in the US... Just incredible.
    It needs to start from a top down approach for a significant change in socio economic crisis in the US.

    There’s a family where I live who are in their mid 30s… they have SIX (living) children. They live in the public housing where utilities are also fully paid, get free phones and service, internet, free christmas and birthday gifts for their kids, etc. The mom “homeschools” the kids and doesn’t work. The dad works menial labor jobs for six months then goes on unemployment for six months. They actually believe that is a normal way to live.

    Disturbing to see anyone's misfortune!
    Each individual and each household is certainly unique.
    It is not always easy to market anything.
    If a household can put together a product there can be certain difficulties in establishing a business and maintaining a business.
    There are a number of codes, ordinances, and laws just with establishing a business.
    It seems like a number of agricultural concerns could be developed with some households even if just growing some things indoors. Conceivably some vegetables could be grown, mushrooms, and insects such as mealworms.
    Of course, any ventures like this can be a steep challenge for many.
    I do not know why people are not getting better medical insurance.
    Thank you for your helpful and informative videos!

    I live in Appalachia now and was born here, but have lived away for most of my life (from teen years - mid 30s).
    When I first came back after years of living out West, the poverty was shocking. In most of the country, you’re considered wealthy if you own expensive properties, have large investments, huge savings, etc. In my corner of Appalachia, you are considered rich if you can afford to eat every day and heat your home in the winter.
    I feel very economically privileged living where I do now, and I felt positively poor out on the west coast. It’s all about perspective.

    I love Miss Sirenia's cheerful outlook even yhough I know it is probably only pretense or a facade. I have nothing myself and have no doubts that when my present landlord/roommate passes, he is 76 and in poor health, I will be homeless. 😅 already live in terror of that day. Unlike Sirenia though, I can only rarely exhibit happiness or an attitude of optimism. I am 61 years old and while life gifted me with above average intelligence and a natural talent to easily learn new things, it also threw an entire toolbox into the works, just for fun, by making sure I had a childhood that I would never ever be able to overcome with any degree of success. I know its my fault. But when I see others living as do I, barely able to eat, I have to wonder just what in the actual fxxk the world can feasibly expect us to be cheerful about. We have nothing. We never will. Thats hard to swallow.

      Our lack of universal healthcare is shocking in Europe, as shocking as extreme poverty in war-torn countries is to us.

      This country would have a currency crash in a year if we did that. We are basically bankrupt already. Our financial system would collapse completely. We already have about 50 million illegals and tens of millions more would flood this country if we had a “free” medical care system. Most doctors would refuse to participate too. It just wouldn’t work here.

      Food insecurity doesn’t mean “literally starving to actual death,” it means “facing malnourishment due to lack of access to adequate food resources.”
      Someone can be malnourished and fat, and their obesity is likely to contribute to excess health problems that someone malnourished and underweight might not face.

      The fact is junk food is cheaper than healthy food. There are 2 docs that actually address the correlation between obesity and poverty in the US. one is called 'A Place At The Table' and the other is titled 'Fed Up', though Fed Up also focuses on the obesity situation in all of America due to the ridiculous amounts of sugar in our food here. There are things that have high sodium, fat and sugar content in our foods that people wouldn't even realize unless they read every label of every product they buy. Even our candy here has copious amounts of sugar compared to European and Eastern countries.

      You can’t tell someone’s situation just by glancing at them for five seconds. He may have mental health issues, neurological conditions, hidden physical conditions like MS or Crohn’s disease, etc. Not all disabilities are immediately obvious.
      Also, he may simply be unemployed. There aren’t many jobs in rural Appalachia.
      Also, *women can work too*. So tired of the misogynistic idea that the man has to be the “breadwinner” and the woman subservient and dependent. Slavish adherence to binary gender roles never made sense to me.

    I live in WV and mostly their just lazy. Guess what in the real world even people who work can’t afford dental work and dentures. I pay for dental insurance and still paid around $2000 out of my pocket for 2 root canals and crowns. My husband needs dentures but it will cost us around $3500 after insurance. No body is lining to give him free teeth.

      There just aren’t many decent jobs available without specialized knowledge or very long commutes (2+ hours one way). My career works there because I have expertise in IT and program evaluation, etc., and most of my clients are based in big cities out west. If I didn’t have any education beyond high school or specialized skills, I’d be working at a convenience store or on benefits, or probably both.
