Poverty & Labor in the North Bay

A recent report takes a close look at issues of income inequality and poverty in Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties, and turns up with some quite alarming trends — including the fact that during the high growth period of the late 1990s, many working families became poorer.
