What Happens When Job Loss Strikes in Low-Income Families?

Luke Shaefer
Feb 21, 2013

Dr. Shaefer provided an overview of the transformation of the safety net for low-income families into a system that subsidizes low-wage work, while providing less aid to the non-working poor. Dr. Shaefer also discussed the implications of unemployment spells for low-income families with children and presented information on the relative responsiveness of three major means-tested safety net programs – TANF, SNAP, and EITC – and discussed broader implications and policy recommendations.
