Research shows that poverty is a strong predictor of a child's future, such as their employment and earnings as an adult. Impoverished children experience poorer health, higher incidence of learning disabilities, and hunger than their peers. The longer a child lives in poverty, the worse their life will turn out to be as an adult.
