Improving the State EITC Would Help Oregon Working Families Get Ahead
A strong work ethic is rightly among the most cherished of American values. In an ideal world, work alone would open the doors to opportunity. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for many Oregonians. Too many low- and moderate-income working families in Oregon struggle to make ends meet.
Oregon can make work more rewarding for low-income families by improving its Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
