September 20, 2012

The Chicago Tribune quoted National Poverty Center director Sheldon Danziger in its article, "Illinois sees more people living in poverty."

According to the article:

"The low-paying sectors are growing," while higher-paying industries continue to shed jobs, said Sheldon Danziger, a University of Michigan economist who has written extensively about poverty trends. "Service, retail, food. They don't pay very high wages. That's a reason why a lot of working people are getting food stamps."
