Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The world of welfare has changed radically. Poor single parents trade welfare checks for low-wage jobs, and their low earnings qualify them for a hefty check come tax time--a combination of the Earned Income Tax Credit and other refunds. For many working parents this one check is like hitting the lottery, offering a key ingredient to enhance the mobility of low-wage workers: hope. "It's Not Like I'm Poor "looks at how working families plan to use this annual cash windfall to build up savings, go back to school, and send their kids to college. By interviewing 115 families, the authors show how dreams of economic mobility are often dashed by the reality of making monthly ends meet on meager wages. In accessible and engaging prose, this book describes how the new welfare system offers hope for a middle-class life, even while upward mobility remains elusive. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: The world of welfare has changed radically. As the poor trade welfare checks for low-wage jobs, their low earnings qualify them for a hefty check come tax time a combination of the earned income tax credit and other refunds. For many working parents this one check is like hitting the lottery, offering several months’ wages as well as the hope of investing in a better future. Drawing on interviews with 115 families, the authors look at how parents plan to use this annual cash windfall to build up savings, go back to school, and send their kids to college. However, these dreams of upward mobility are often dashed by the difficulty of trying to get by on meager wages. In accessible and engaging prose, It’s Not Like I’m Poor examines the costs and benefits of the new work-based safety net, suggesting ways to augment its strengths so that more of the working poor can realize the promise of a middle-class life.
