Low-Wage Work in the American South

As part of a larger study sponsored by Oxfam America, South by North Strategies prepared a white paper analyzing low-wage work in 12 southern states.

The report, which was entitled New South, Old Problem: Low-Wage Work in Today’s South,  estimated the number of low-wage working families living in the region, described the key demographic traits of those families, and analyzed their experiences in the labor market. It also contained a discussion of promising approaches (policy and programmatic) for addressing low-wage work.
