When Famialism Fails: The Nature and Causes of In-Work Poverty in Belgium
Ive Marx and
Chapter 3 in The Working Poor in Europe, 2008 from Edward Elgar Publishing
For a long time in-work poverty was not associated with European welfare states. Recently, the topic has gained relevance as welfare state retrenchment and international competition in globalized economies has put increasing pressures on individuals and families. This book provides explanations as to why in-work poverty is high in certain countries and low in others.
