New ALICE Data: Wage Gains No Match for Inflation

Overhead black and white image of people walking and holding umbrellas. Several umbrellas are yellow.

Today, we launch our newest research, “ALICE in the Crosscurrents: An Update on Financial Hardship” in New Jersey and across the country.   

Our latest findings are consistent with a more than decade-long trend. Despite some ups and downs, the number of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households in our state and country remains stubbornly high.  

We have the power to alter the course for ALICE families. But we can’t do it alone. Click here to support the continuation of this groundbreaking national movement to create change.  

In 2022, while many of these low-income workers saw their wages grow at the fastest rate in four decades, it wasn’t enough to eclipse inflation and a decade of being left out of economic progress. Compounding the issue in 2022 was the loss of up to $15,000 in federal child tax credits and stimulus payments for families with children.
