A single mom has the most resources available to her family when she works full time at a wage of $8.25 to $12 an hour. Disturbingly, taking a pay increase to $18 an hour can leave her with about one-third fewer total resources (net income and government benefits). In order to make work "pay" again, she would need an hourly wage of $38 to mitigate the impact of lost benefits and higher taxes
для непонятливых в ангельском: если матери-одиночке с двумя детьми повысят зарплату с $8.25 (или даже от $12/час) до $18/час, ее реальный доход упадет на треть. более того, ее семейный доход вернется к до-улучшайзинговому уровню только тогда, когда ее зарплата возрастет до $38/час.
