Low-Wage Workers in the New Economy by Richard Kazis, Marc S. Miller

Since 1994, welfare roles have dropped by more than 50 percent nationwide. More than half of these people—about 800,000—have moved into unsubsidized paid employment, yet the very success of welfare reform has brought another problem into stark relief: for many people, getting into work doesn't mean getting out of poverty. In this collection of essays edited by Jobs for the Future's Richard Kazis and Marc Miller, an impressive line-up of experts explores how our nation can help these and all working Americans pull themselves out of poverty through work.
