In the United States, worker health care is funded through health insurance plans paid for by employers.

Escobari, Marcela; Seyal, Ian; Meaney, Michael – Center for Universal Education at The Brookings Institution, 2019
Every person deserves the opportunity for dignified employment that provides living wages and potential for advancement. However, for many in America today, this is far from reality, as they are caught in a cycle of low-wage work, earning poverty wages, and unable to move up in the economy. Local leaders, firms, and workers need to adapt quickly…

Grobe, Terry – Jobs for the Future, 2019
Millions of working Californians are unable to fulfill their families' basic needs. Higher-paying jobs that require specialized skills are beyond their reach, and many entry-level jobs are likely to be automated by 2022, so there is an urgent need to redesign the state's education and training systems to help people get the skills they need to…

Rarely used explanatory factors are central in the analyses, such as 'still in study' and 'field of education'. Tertiary graduates in low-wage jobs are regarded as over-educated. The results of this work…

Dill, Janette S.; Morgan, Jennifer Craft; Marshall, Victor W. – Gerontologist, 2013
Purpose of the Study: While theories of job turnover generally assume a strong correlation between job satisfaction, intention, and retention, such models may be limited in explaining turnover of low-wage health care workers. Low-wage workers likely have a lower ability to act on their employment intentions or plans due to a lack of resources that…

Wages, Michele – Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2021
It is not that public schools don't know the importance of technology integration, it's the barriers to integrating that result in schools not having the latest, greatest, or fastest technology for their students. This book not only addresses these barriers, but offers researched solutions that are of low to no cost.
