Almost half of Alabama's population is having trouble paying bills


There's only one state with a higher percentage of the population in that situation....Mississippi, where the figure is 52.9%.

CBS has the story

Some Americans are struggling more than others, with a greater share of hardship reported in many Southern states, the census data shows. Incomes tend to be lower in those regions, with many workers still earning the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour — an hourly rate that hasn't budged since 2009."
