Economic Security Elusive for Women
February 6, 2014
Female-headed households in Minnesota are the most likely type of family configuration to be in poverty. And a persistent wage gap and “occupational clustering” contribute to the poverty that afflicts women and their families.
These are some of the findings of a study of Women’s Economic Security in the state of Minnesota. The report is the work of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota and the Center on Women and Public Policy at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School.
Deb Fitzpatrick is director of the Center on Women and Public Policy. She talked with KFAI's Paul Brohaugh, who asked if there's anything new in the report.
