*Source:* *Employment Policy Research Network* Author: Randy Albelda
*Summary: *(includes link to the 28 page paper)* *Low-wage workers are speaking up these days and organizing for better wages and working conditions. For lots of good reasons, including that when parents have to accommodate whatever demands employers make, it means their children do too. Millions of working parents have job schedules that keep them from being home for homework, dinner-time talk, bed-time rituals – the most basic care all youngsters need. Drawing on more than 100 studies and sources, the report “*How Youth Are Put At Risk by Parents’ Low-Wage Jobs**” * provides an interdisciplinary research overview of what is known about the relationship between the status of youth and their parents’ low-wage jobs.
