I can't seem to get at the article -- it says I need to stop blocking ads or subscribe, and I tried unblocking, but it still didn't work -- but wouldn't that be an issue in other countries also, not only in the USA?

It is an interesting point. But I suspect that the fact that poor people are often working multiple jobs with hours they have no control over, and otherwise juggling their lives so as to try to cope with lack of money, may have more to do with it. It's in many cases exhausting to be poor. And huge amounts of one's available attention tend to be taken up with things along the lines of 'is there enough in the account to keep both the phone and the lights on? and which one can I get away without paying longer? and how long can I ignore that weird rattle in the car?'
