Millions Of Americans' Wages Seized Over Credit Card And Medical Debt

Kevin Evans relaxes in his small apartment after arriving home from work. Evans, who lost income and his home in the recession, is now having his wages garnished after falling behind on his credit card payments.
Colin E. Braley AP for ProPublica

Millions of Americans are still grappling with debt they've accumulated since the recession hit. And new numbers out Monday show many are having a tougher time than you might think.

One in 10 working Americans between the ages of 35 and 44 are getting their wages garnished. That means their pay is being docked — often over an old credit card debt, medical bill or student loan.

That striking figure comes out of a collaboration between NPR and ProPublica. The reporting offers the first available national numbers on wage garnishment.

Mai Hamada, 30, was injured by an Israeli airstrike on a home for the disabled in July in the Gaza Strip. Hamada has cerebral palsy and can't walk. Israel is investigating cases of possible illegal action by its military and may look into the attack on the group home.

The Israeli military says that it has investigated more than 40 potentially illegal actions by its forces during the war in the Gaza Strip this summer and announced this week that it has opened criminal investigations into five cases.
