    My income makes me feel …

    My income makes me feel...Unwanted

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Marcus Kastler, 31, identifies himself as someone in the low income bracket. The Kansas resident works for a boys and girls club as a group leader. Most of the people he knows work two or three jobs. “There is a huge gap that is unfair and unrealistic. Minimum wage keeps this gap wide because you can't advance without higher education,” he said. “We need to start more entry level jobs so that low income can work their way up. Lower the cost to go to college so we can afford to go.”
