  • A New Era of Family Policy

    Anne Mosle by: Anne Mosle, Marjorie Sims
    We are at a moment in the nation, and in this state, when a paradigm shift is in reach to update ineffective, top-down systems to be more responsive, effective and equitable for all families. Today, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides unprecedented resources to improve the lives of families who are still reeling from COVID-19 and its economic impact as well as the longstanding inequities that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. Now Congress is debating a $3.5 trillion budget resolution which, if passed, will increase these resources even more. Luckily, a bold, pragmatic and proven strategy is already in place that can serve as a model: the two generation, or 2Gen, approach.

  • Workers and Families Are Fighting for Paid Time to Care

    Carol Joyner by: Carol Joyner
    When I was just turning forty, with two young children and a full-time job, my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I had never seen her sick a day in my life. She was my rock and the center of our large, rowdy and loving family. I had no idea what the future would hold for her, or us. But I learned quickly about the human cost of policies that do not protect and support workers when it became clear I had to step up as the primary caregiver.

  • Michigan Lawmakers Should Allocate Federal Aid Earmarked for Foster Kids

    Ov'varshia Gray-Woods by: Ov'varshia Gray-Woods, Carlos Correa, Alyssa Andrews
    School has started, bills and rent are due and Michigan youth who were raised by the foster care system are struggling with the ongoing economic and emotional impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sadly, Michigan is missing a critical opportunity to support young people. The State Legislature is sitting on almost 11 million dollars that were dedicated by Congress to help foster youth survive COVID-19 and its aftermath. As alumni of the foster system, we know this situation up close and personally, and call upon the Michigan legislature to act now and distribute the already received funds so they can be used to help young people who desperately need them.

  • 12 Years Without a Minimum Wage Raise

    Holly Sklar by: Holly Sklar
    We've hit a terrible milestone for the federal minimum wage ...12 years without a raise. The last increase was to $7.25 an hour on July 24, 2009. Thats so long ago, the top movies that year were Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Up, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and Avatar. The minimum wage has not gone up, but prices have. It would take a minimum wage worker 79 hours per week on average to afford a modest 1-bedroom at Fair Market Rent, according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition. The minimum wage has become a poverty wage instead of an anti-poverty wage.
