About this product
- DescriptionThis thought-provoking book provides an in-depth analysis of the working poor phemen and its causes across welfare regimes, and identifies the most efficient policy mixes and best practices that could be utilized to resolve this problem. Eric Crettaz argues that 'the working poor' is too broad a category to be used for meaningful academic or policy discussion, and that a distinction must be made between different categories of poor workers. He illustrates how different welfare regimes generate different forms of working poverty via in-depth case studies of various OECD countries over the past decade, underpinned by a theoretical and conceptual framework. Using meta-analyses of evaluations of social policy tools, the author addresses the key question of what constitutes the most efficient policies to deal with the problem of working poverty. Fighting Working Poverty in Post-industrial Ecomies will prove an enlightening and stimulating read for academics, researchers and students across various disciplines including sociology, ecomics and political science. In addition, policymakers and other stakeholders seeking invative solutions to the potentially growing problem of working poverty will find this book to be an invaluable point of reference.
