From the press release:
At least 48 million Americans in working families lack the income needed to gain a toehold in the middle class, according to a new report released by the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

“Movin’ On Up: Reforming America’s Social Contract to Provide a Bridge to the Middle Class” synthesizes recent research by CEPR on job quality, economic security, and unionization, and outlines a set of national policy reforms that would make it possible for more struggling families to join the middle class.
