Conference and Work Supports Policy Paper Announcement: Bridging the Gaps

    The Bridging the Gaps National Conference , Washington, DC, Thursday, October 18, 2007 8:00 am - 4:25 pm. The agenda is here

At the Bridging the Gaps conference, esteemed researchers and advocates will debate how work supports should be structured in the future. What would be ideal? How could it happen politically? Panelists will offer both big ideas and practical examples of how work supports can be designed to give all working families the opportunity to bridge the gaps between their earnings and a basic standard of living.

This week, Bridging the Gaps released a report entitled: "Bridging the Gaps: A Picture of How Work Supports Works in Ten States" by Randy Albelda and Heather Boushey.  The Report can be found here, the press release is here, and a powerpoint presentation of work supports data in ten states is here
