From AP News: 
The gap in employment rates between America's highest- and lowest-income families has stretched to its widest levels since officials began tracking the data a decade ago, according to an analysis of government data conducted for The Associated Press.

I'm not surprised.. rich aim to become richer by means of poor.. it's not fair, but I'm not sure whether it can be stopped.. Very often poor people are unemployed, and  unemployed become discouraged.. Sometimes good CV can help to find a job! If a candidate makes bad resume,  it makes him look unprofessional. But good resume enhances a chance of a candidate. Try to consult professional resume writing service,  ResumeWritingLab to make the CV more effective and avoid mistakes. Good luck!
