The Cliff Effect

 

In order to pay for their basic needs without any help, a Nebraska family of 3 working full-time year-round needs to make $20.62 an hour.

Along the way, there are sudden losses of work supports, like food stamps or child care subsidies, before a family actually makes enough to pay for those expenses without help.

Thank you to taking the time to share!

    Extremely effective visual of the very present day difficulties of far too many of Nebraska young families. We need to get this handed out in every house of worship in Nebraska on a single day and get every pastor, priest, rabbi, and every other religous leader to speak out on behalf of our state’s poor. We need everyone to understand that we ALL benefit from every Nebraskan being able to be self-sufficent. Keep up the excellent work.
