Abstract

"Business Maine: Central & Western" piece with the results of a new report showing that more than a quarter of Maine's jobs don't provide workers with enough pay to cover basic necessities such as food and housing. The Maine Center for Economic Policy released a report that found 27.6 percent of Maine's jobs don't pay enough to cover needs such as food, housing, transportation and education for a family of four. In addition, about half of Maine's jobs offer no sick leave or pension savings. The report found that one in 12 Maine workers is holding more than one job.
