Recent reports show that 40 percent of Michigan families are still unable to afford basic living necessities. This means that nearly 1.5 million households earned below the federal poverty level or did not make enough money to pay their bills in 2012 and 2015, according to a research by the Michigan Association of United Ways.

For example, a family of four must earn $56,000 annually to afford basic necessities, the report shows, whether one person in the family worked or two at a rate of $25 an hour.

Improving the earning of people in Michigan creates stability in the state, communities and the job market. We urge employers, state and local officials to work together to provide training and economic opportunities for working families to escape the poverty level. Click here for more ….
