A Part-Time Life, as Hours Shrink and Shift-Surviving in a Changing Economy

Shannon Hardin earns $10.90 an hour at her part-time job. 
“I can’t live on this,” she said. “It’s almost impossible.”
-Sandy Huffaker for The New York Times-
The widening use of part-timers has been a bane to many workers, pushing many into poverty and forcing some onto food stamps and Medicaid. And with work schedules that change week to week,
workers can find it hard to arrange child care,
attend college or hold a second job,
according to interviews with more than 40 part-time workers.

In in two leading industries — retailing and hospitality — the number of part-timers who would prefer to work full-time has jumped to 3.1 million, or two-and-a-half times the 2006 level, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In retailing alone, nearly 30 percent of part-timers want full-time jobs, up from 10.6 percent in 2006.
The agency found that in the retail and wholesale sector, which includes hundreds of thousands of small stores that rely heavily on full-time workers, about 3 in 10 employees work part-time.

FEDERAL POLICY UPDATES  
Would you pay a Dime a Day so 29 Million Workers can get a raise? 
Read the Restaurant Opportunity Center's (ROC) new study:  "A Dime a Day: the Impact of the Miller/Harkin Minimum Wage Proposal on the Price of Food," 
It finds that raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.80/hour over the next 3 years and the tipped minimum wage from $2.13 to 70% of the regular minimum wage will have a minimal impact on food costs.

Penn State Campus Raises Human Trafficking Awareness

Available to answer calls from anywhere in the country, 
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
Members of the Penn State DuBois Diversity Committee, in conjunction with the Student Life Office, organized programs in "The Stackpole Hall Diversity Series" this week to help inform the campus community of the global crisis surrounding human trafficking.

According to the Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking, an estimated 2.5 million people are in forced labor, including sexual exploitation, at any given time as a result of human trafficking.

Pennsylvania is one of few states in the country with no specific laws regulating human sex trafficking, which is also an issue of overwhelming proportions around the country.

Understanding Domestic Violence and How to Stop it

The 2012 nationwide Mary Kay Truth About Abuse Survey showed that "8 out of 10 domestic violence shelters nationwide reported an increase in women seeking help."

The economy has had an effect. Not only is demand up while "funding, services and prevention efforts are down," but the survey went on to report that "74 percent of women stayed with an abuser longer for economic reasons, [and] 58 percent of shelters reported that the abuse is more violent now than before the economic downturn."

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

PathWays PA Releases the 2012-2013 Pennsylvania Self-Sufficiency Report: Overlooked and Undercounted
While the likelihood of experiencing inadequate income in Pennsylvania is concentrated among certain families by gender, race/ethnicity, education, and location, families with inadequate incomes are remarkably diverse.


In terms of race and ethnicity,
* 67% of households in Pennsylvania with inadequate income are White,
* 19% are Black,
* 10% are Latino, and
* 4% are Asian/Pacific Islander.

Of the households below the Standard in Pennsylvania:
* 25% are married-couple households with children,
* 24% are single-women households with children,
* 5% are single-male households with children, and
* the remaining 46% of the households below the Standard are family households without children and nonfamily households (also without children).

Among Pennsylvania householders in families with inadequate income,
* 14% lack a high school degree,
* 39% have a high school degree,
* 31% have some college or an Associate's degree, and
* 16% have a Bachelor's degree or higher.
About 79% of Pennsylvania households with inadequate income have at least one employed adult.

Over half (51%) of Pennsylvania households with insufficient income have one worker, and 27% have two or more workers.

Only 8% of households with inadequate income receive public cash assistance. However, nearly one in three (31%) households below the Standard participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps), reflecting the broader experience of this program during the Great Recession.

About three out of four Pennsylvania households below the Standard spend more than 30% of their income on housing.

Of Pennsylvania households below the Standard, more than one in four (27%) do not have health insurance coverage.

WHAT IS THE SELF-SUFFICIENCY STANDARD?

The Standard calculates the true cost of living facing American families, illuminating the economic "crunch" experienced by so many families today, with each Standard calculated over the last 15 years documenting the increasing real cost of living.

Unlike the federal poverty measure, the Standard is varied both geographically and by family composition, reflecting the higher cost needs of some families (especially child care for families with young children). The Self-Sufficiency Standard measures how much income a family of a certain composition in a given place needs to meet their basic needs-without public or private assistance.

The Standard calculates the costs of six basic needs plus taxes and tax credits. It assumes the full cost of each need, without help from public subsidies (e.g., public housing, Medicaid, or child care assistance) or private/informal assistance (e.g., unpaid babysitting by a relative or friend, food from food banks, or shared housing).

The resulting Self-Sufficiency Standards are basic needs, no-frills budgets created for all family types in each county in a given state. The Standard does not include retirement savings, education expenses, debt repayment, or emergencies.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE OVERLOOKED AND UNDERCOUNTED?

The term "poverty" often refers to households living below the official Federal Poverty Level, which is viewed by most economists and policy makers as an insufficient method of measuring need in a community. Focusing on families living below the Federal Poverty Level results in a certain blindness to the very real economic distress being experienced by many Pennsylvanian households. That is, many are struggling in these difficult economic times with incomes inadequate to meet even their basic needs, yet because they are not officially designated as "poor" they are routinely being overlooked and undercounted. In this report, families that are "overlooked and undercounted" are those who live below the Self-Sufficiency Standard but above the Federal Poverty Level.  

STATE LAUNCHES ON-LINE LIHEAP APPLICATION
The Department of Public Welfare is encouraging Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) recipients to 
apply online this year for assistance in paying home heating.
The department is sending all LIHEAP clients who applied online last year a postcard notice encouraging them to reapply online. bills, a new process that will make the application process faster and will save taxpayer dollars. 
"Paper applications will always be available to our clients who prefer them," Secretary of Public Welfare Gary D. Alexander said. "But, in order to reduce administrative costs within the LIHEAP program, we are taking a different approach this year by encouraging clients to apply for the program online." 

Clients who received LIHEAP last year will have the opportunity to apply prior to the LIHEAP program opening on Nov. 1. By way of the new postcard, clients will be provided with a pre-registration number giving them access to an online application that has already been filled out using last year's data. Clients will simply have to make sure their online information is correct and update anything that may have changed, saving both clients and the department valuable time. 

All online applications are sent straight to the county office to determine eligibility, thereby eliminating mail and hand processing time. In addition, the department will save approximately $75,000 by sending postcards instead of full application packets in the mail. 

"The LIHEAP program is a critical component to helping Pennsylvania families make ends meet by keeping them warm and safe during the winter months," Alexander said. "This is also an example of how the department has looked at each and every program and identified both big and small ways that we can reduce government waste." 

LIHEAP is a grant program that offers home heating assistance to eligible low-income households or families in crisis. Each year, the LIHEAP program serves 392,349 Pennsylvania households. 

New applicants can begin applying for the program on Nov. 1. Previous clients who applied online last year, and those participating in a pilot postcard application program in Lancaster County, should be receiving a postcard. The rest will receive paper applications in the mail. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
LIHEAP benefits will be issued beginning Nov. 1. Clients interested in applying online can visit www.compass.state.pa.us
For more information on LIHEAP, visit the Department of Public Welfare's website at www.dpw.state.pa.us.  
FEDERAL POLICY UPDATES  

Tax Credits and VITA are in Danger!

Policymakers in DC are debating tax policy and budget issues that could have a devastating effect on millions of working families. The Senate represents one of our best hopes to avoid the weakening of important tax credits - but Senators are under pressure and need to hear from you today.
Critical provisions of the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit will expire after Dec. 31 if Congress doesn't act. The American Opportunity Tax Credit could cease to exist all together. These credits help tens of millions of struggling families make ends meet and stay out of poverty, and - in the case of the AOTC - access higher education opportunities for their children. 
In addition, automatic federal budget cuts are scheduled to take place on Jan. 1, and threaten a wide variety of important supports for working families - including the possible loss of nearly $1 million for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. Struggling households need Congress to stop those cuts from taking place - and to do so in a way that doesn't, in turn, take new aim at vital priorities such as the EITC, CTC, and AOTC. 
STATE POLICY UPDATES  

Human Trafficking Bill Sent to Governor
PathWays PA and our Coalition partners are thrilled to announce that the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline Act (HB 235/SB 338) has been passed and is on its way to the Governor's desk to await his signature.   
Human trafficking is when individuals are forced or coerced against their will into labor or sexual exploitation. It is the second largest criminal industry in the world, with an estimated 27 million people in modern-day slavery around the globe, and it is a crime that predominantly affects women and girls. It is happening right here in Pennsylvania.

House Bill 235 will mandate the advertisement of the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline in various establishments across the state where victims are most likely to be found. 

Pennsylvania Introduces Shared-Work Program
 
Pennsylvania recently introduced a Shared-Work Program. This program lets employers considering a lay-off to instead temporarily cut back workers hours and have those workers collect Unemployment Compensation benefits for the reduced hours. Hours must be cut at least 20%, and not more than 40%. To learn more about this program, or to apply for participation, please click here. 

Online Vote Planning
Working America has seen it proven again and again that when voters walk through the process of voting, and thinking about how they're going to do it, they are more likely to actually vote.

So to work towards replicating this trend online, we've launched iamworkingamerica.org, which is an online vote planning tool:

  •   This powerful tool allows anyone to walk through the process of voting, and brings in state-specific informationabout poll hours/ early voting/ absentee voting, etc.
  •   Then, once the plan is made, custom Facebook post text is generated, based on the information that was provided.
  •   About a week before the election, we are going to send an email to plan-makers reminding them of their voting plans.
