IPPR on the "working poor"
A quick plug for the IPPR pamphlet published yesterday written by Hackney North Labour Party member Graeme Cooke.
Entitled "Working Out of Poverty: A study of the low-paid and the ‘working poor’" it exposes the way that whilst as a Government we've managed to get people into work, in many cases this has not taken them out of poverty because of the way the benefits system is structured e.g. you get housing benefit if you are workless but lose it once you get a fairly low paid job.
Useful research and hopefully being read by DWP Ministers.
