If women's salaries are jumping, why are families stuck in poverty?
Women’s wages are going up. But families can’t seem to break through the poverty ceiling. In his latest piece for The Atlantic, W. Bradford Wilcox wrote about families who still struggle in poverty even though women are getting better wages and the supposed wage gap seems to be shrinking.
“What gives?” Wilcox asked. “What accounts for the paradox that women’s income is rising across the board yet family income is falling for the bottom 40 percent of families? Mainly, to paraphrase Hanna Rosin, the end of marriage and men in working-class and poor communities across the nation, coupled with the fact that maternal labor-force participation has plateaued since the 1990s.”
