Even during this period of national prosperity, 29% of working families in the United States with as many as three children under age 12 do not earn enough income to afford basic necessities. EPI's latest book, Hardships in America: The Real Story of Working Families, examines the cost of living in every community nationwide and determines separate "basic family budgets" -- the amount a family would need to earn to afford food, housing, child care, health insurance, transportation, and utilities -- for each community.
