Working and Poor: How Economic and Policy Changes Are Affecting Low-Wage Workers

Publication Abstract

Blank, Rebecca M., Sheldon H. Danziger, and Robert F. Schoeni. 2006. Working and Poor: How Economic and Policy Changes Are Affecting Low-Wage Workers. New York: Russell Sage Foundation.

In this volume, a distinguished group of economists and policy experts, headlined by editors Rebecca Blank, Sheldon Danziger, and Robert Schoeni, examine how economic and policy changes over the past 25 years have affected the well-being of low-wage workers and their families. The book looks at every facet of the economic well-being of less-skilled workers, from employment and earnings opportunities to consumption behavior and social assistance policies. It provides a valuable analysis of the role that public policy changes can play in improving the plight of the working poor. A comprehensive analysis of trends over the past 25 years, this book provides an invaluable reference for the public discussion of work and poverty in America.
