This is exactly why California's Supplemental Poverty Level is so important in framing the poverty conversation in the Golden State of California. #CAcandobetter

Employment does not eliminate poverty. Struggling workers in California can face many barriers to exiting poverty, including low wages, a high cost of living, and a changing job market.
