From WOOC: "Anti-poverty advocates are proposing the Working Families Tax Credit to combine several existing tax credits into one cohesive credit aimed at helping struggling families. Supporters noted that the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit have a harmful phase-in, which means that if you make very little money, if you’re one of our poorest families, you actually get very little to nothing from those credits. Liza Schwartzwald, Director of Economic Justice and Family Empowerment at the New York Immigration Coalition. spoke with WOOC's Mark Dunlea."
