Policy gains don't happen overnight.
Federal and state Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) are policies that benefit low-paid workers, helping boost income and improve child well-being. Due to long-standing occupational segregation, women and people of color represent the greatest share of workers in jobs that pay low wages, and therefore would stand to benefit the most from EITCs. Recent changes at the federal level and innovations in the states over the last several years expanded refunds and access to previously excluded households.
