WASHINGTON, D.C. – Life can certainly be tough, especially for low-income families.

61% of female-headed working families in Texas are low-income. This is actually an increase from 2007. 56% of those women don’t have any sort of college education.

The Working Poor Families Project report suggested that one of the ways to help out these families would be to raise the minimum wage.

Without money, you can’t get education. Without education, there are no good jobs. Without a job there is no money. The cycle is easy to see.

However, low-cost degrees are becoming more accessible in Texas. Perhaps in the future some of these statistics will be able to improve.
