Helen Agbapuruonwu, mother of four, collected food stamps and Medicaid benefits from 2010 to 2016. The problem is that while she was collecting $100,000 in benefits over 6 or 7 years, her husband, a DC lawyer was making 1.5 million dollars a year.

Industry 4.0, also referred to as the fourth industrial revolution, includes the heavy use of automation technologies and a greater exchange of data in manufacturing environments such as factories. Industry 4.0 got its name because it follows the earlier manufacturing phases of water/steam power, electric power and computing power.
