• Description

Working poor families continue to live in poverty, despite working full-time jobs. Low-wage earners have found that working full-time hours does not ensure economic stability. Parents who work full-time at a salary well above the minimum wage find that they and their families are still living below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL). An individual who earns $7.11 an hour and works full-time is still at only 100% of the poverty line.
