Economic inequality and America's working families

 | 

The financial stability of America’s working families is increasingly divided by race and ethnicity, says a study released this week by The Working Poor Families Project.

“In 2013, working families headed by racial/ethnic minorities were twice as likely to be poor or low-income (47 percent) compared with non-Hispanic whites (23 percent),” the study states, “a gap that has increased since the onset of the Great Recession in 2007.”
