Washington Post Series: "Hardest Hit: Hurt and Hope Among Low Wage Workers"
The Washington Post today published Michael A. Fletcher & Jon Cohen, "Hovering Above Poverty, Grasping for Middle Class" (Aug. 3, 2008), an article detailing the results of a survey (full report here) conducted by the Washington Post, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, and Harvard University. A good associated graphic goes with the story. The article is part of a larger series, "The Hardest Hit" that the Post will be publishing over the coming weeks.
