Workshop gives business, government leaders a taste of poverty

Paula D. Copeland, left, a manager for the state Department of Human Resources, counts out fake money for Leslie Rapsey, who was acting as a clerk at a utility company. Rapsey actually works for the Community Progress Council, which held a poverty simulation exercise Thursday at York College. The simulation brought together business and community leaders who pretended to be poor for one morning so they could better understand what the working poor go through. January is Poverty Awareness Month. - (Photo / Thomas A. Barstow)
