Low-wage workers more engaged with better benefits

Low-wage employees are more likely to be engaged and productive when they have access to the same types of benefits and opportunities available to high-wage workers, according to newly released research from the Families and Work Institute.

Creating a base of entry-level and hourly employees that is more productive and effective could boil down to one critical concept: access. According to newly released reports from the Families and Work Institute, low-wage employees are more likely to be engaged and productive when they have access to the kinds of benefits and professional opportunities that their high-wage counterparts enjoy.

The research defines low-wage employees as individuals earning about $9.70 per hour, with total annual income below 200 percent of the federal poverty threshold, or $39,612 for a family of four in 2005. The findings were drawn from the National Study of the Changing Workforce, which was conducted by the Families and Work Institute in 2002 and 2003.
