Profile of the Working Poor: 2007

Posted by neocaablogger on April 3, 2009

A Profile of the Working Poor: 2007, March 2009. This
report is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and provides an overview
of the working poor in 2007. Specifically, Black and Hispanic workers
continued to be more than twice as likely as their White counterparts
to be poor. Additionally, in 2007, only 1.3 percent of college
graduates who were in the labor force for at least 27 weeks were among
the working poor, compared with 16.5 percent of those with less than a
high school diploma. Data also showed that women who maintain families
were more than twice as likely as their male counterparts to be among
the working poor.
