Choices: The State of Working Maine in 2010
A shrinking economy affects us all, especially low and moderate income workers who have been losing ground in good times and bad. To reverse these trends, policymakers must appreciate the role that government played in growing America’s middle class during the last century and take the lead in positioning us for future growth and prosperity. State policymakers must seek solutions to preserve economic security and promote economic opportunity for Maine workers now. Doing so will provide an immediate boost to economic activity and better position Maine workers to share in the rewards of a growing economy.
