Parents and Children Facing a World of Risk

"Next Steps toward a Working Families' Agenda" Roundtable Report

Abstract

About a quarter of American families with children work regularly but remain low-income.

This conference report lays out the salient point of the two-day roundtable and the thrust of a future agenda.
