Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed
DO YOU KNOW ALICE?
ALICE, or Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed, is a new way of defining a demographic of households that earn an income that is above the Federal Poverty Level, but not enough to afford a sustainable household budget.
ONE UNEXPECTED EXPENSE CAN LAUNCH AN ALICE HOUSEHOLD INTO FINANCIAL RUIN
ALICE households, also classified as “the working poor” are constantly forced to make impossible decisions between rent or medical care, gas or food expenses, phone bills or daycare. Consequently, these folks are always on the brink of substantial financial issues, such as bankruptcy.
The goal of the ALICE initiative is to begin a conversation about the invisible, yet not uncommon struggle that is happening in America today.
