RESOURCE ON THE WORKING POOR
The January/February 2002 issue of ChildCareActioNews (www.childcareaction.org)
highlighted a very useful resource for advocates. The Poverty Despite Work
Handbook from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities provides information
on working poor families. Based on data from the US Census Bureau, it presents
demographics and highlights problems that working poor families face, such as
the lack of affordable child care. The handbook also includes 47 state-by-state
tables. The book costs $5. To order, call (202) 408-1080.
