WORKING FAMILIES: A LEGISLATOR'S TOOLKIT
Half of all American's cannot get $2,000 in thirty days. That means that many people are a major car repair or an unexpected medical bill away from a financial crisis. The vast majority of families—82.2 percent in 2008—have at least one member who works. Yet, despite their efforts, many of these families face significant challenges to achieving their goal of economic security.
Since 2002, The National Conference of State Legislatures / Annie E. Casey Foundation Partnership on Family Economic Success has assisted legislators who want to create more opportunities for working families to succeed.
