According to a recent study, one-third of working individuals in North Idaho do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare, childcare and education. Currently, 40 million Americans are working in low-paying jobs without basic health and retirement benefits. For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way is here to help.
