NAPERVILLE SUN
-- FROM THE ARTICLE: Ironically, a flourishing economy in DuPage is responsible for the poverty rate growing, says Phil Smith, director of community services for DuPage. "It's kind of the two-edged sword of having a strong economy," Smith said. "It's good for people working here, and it's good for people who want to work here." People with lower incomes are attracted to DuPage because of the economic opportunity it offers, Smith said. And they are especially drawn to low wage service jobs, which have multiplied in the last several years.
