People wait in line to get a meal at the "Plaza Miserere" square during
a National Day of Solidarity in Buenos Aires, August 26, 2001.
According to an official study released by the National Statistics
Bureau, one out of every three people in Buenos Aires and its suburbs
is poor, which means they do not earn the national minimum wage of 154
pesos a month needed to buy food, clothes and pay for services.
