Who is ALICE?
We all know ALICE – Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.
ALICE families have household incomes above the Federal Poverty Level, but below a basic cost-of-living threshold. The Connecticut Report is a study of financial hardships in our state. ALICE may be your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues, and represents every race, ethnicity and gender. She lives in every area of our state. ALICE is your nursing assistant, childcare worker, home health aide, car mechanic, security guard, teaching assistant, store clerk and office assistant – workers essential to every community’s success, but who struggle to survive on what these jobs pay.
