  • Dresser, L., and J. Rogers. The State of Working Wisconsin 2000. COWS.

Over the last five years, economic growth and declining unemployment rates have started to bear fruit for working families’ incomes. Even so, the typical American family is working more hours, wage inequality remains high, poverty has stagnated rather than fallen, and poor job quality is still a serious American problem.
