Still Working Hard, Still Falling Short
Many American families, despite working hard, earn incomes too low to achieve economic security. Still Working Hard, Still Falling Short, a follow-up to a 2004 report, found that an additional 350,000 working families were low-income in 2006 compared to 2002.
Written by the Working Poor Families Project and funded in part by the Casey Foundation, the new report analyzes U.S. Census data and concludes that more than one out of four working families with children is low-income, and a total of 42 million adults and children struggle to get by.
