How Many Earned Wages

What this page shows us:  This page shows how many working age regional center clients have earned money in each of the last eleven years. The number of people making money stayed about the same during and after the great recession. However, Since the passage of California’s Employment First Policy, in 2013, the number of people making money increased by 15%.  Despite this improvement, the percentage of working age regional center clients who do make money is still very small, only 13.6% in 2015.
