This SIPR Policy Paper examines how innovative technologies are being employed to assist low-wage workers and employers in developing “work supports” to serve as a bridge for individuals in moving from public assistance to independence. It is the first in a series of essays in support of SIPR’s project on the Benefits Access Learning Cluster, an effort funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and managed by Senior Fellow April Kaplan.
