Labor Markets and Poverty in the US: Basic Facts, Policy and Research Needs

Labor Markets and Poverty in the US: Basic Facts, Policy and Research Needs

In this presentation, economist and Center for Poverty Research director Ann Huff Stevens discusses how stagnation of wages at the bottom of the US wage distribution over the past several decades and continuing low rates of full-time work, especially in single-parent households, often leave families below the official poverty threshold.

Panelists on the topic include Sarah Bohn, Public Policy Institute of California; Kate Karpilow, Ph.D., California Center for Research on Women and Families; and Paul McLain-Lugowski, Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission.

This presentation was part of the UC Davis Poverty Research and Policy Summit at UC Center Sacramento on April 22, 2016. For more information about the event, visit http://poverty.ucdavis.edu/summit.
