A quote from Pope Francis:
"Unemployment -- the lack or loss of work -- is a phenomenon that is spreading like an oil slick in vast areas of the west and is alarmingly widening the boundaries of poverty. Moreover there is no worse material poverty, I am keen to stress, than the poverty which prevents people from earning their bread and deprives them of the dignity of work."
-- Address to the Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice Foundation, Clementine Hall, May 25, 2013
