PSC Researcher and Director of Poverty Soutions, H. Luke Shaefer quited in NYT article on Americans with tight financial resources have fewer options as they navigate coronavirus closures and layoffs.
"Poverty experts said that in times of natural disasters and large-scale emergencies, low-income families who are already living on tight budgets with overdue bills, unstable housing, poor health care and unsteady employment often bear the brunt of the pain."
"They tend to be the first hit when things go wrong and then also to take the longest time to recover," says Shaefer,
