A new analysis of Washington’s economy reveals that many hallmarks of middle-class life – owning a home, sending the kids to college, having health care, and building a retirement nest egg – have become increasingly unattainable for local families. How will state leaders respond? The State of Working Washington 2009 examines these and other economic trends, and offers an agenda for shared prosperity to position Washington State and its people for future economic growth.
