Low Wage Workers Look Back at Better Days

A survey of low-wage workers reveals that the 52 percent majority made more money at their previous job. Low-wage workers are defined as those employed and making $14/hour or less, or the unemployed who made $14/hour or less at their last job.

Among low-wage workers, older men are most likely to report having made more at their previous job. Fully 60 percent of men aged 50 or older earning low wages say they used to make more money.
