Number of Working Poor Increases

Sociologist Erik Snel, of Erasmus University in Rotterdam, says that the number of working poor in the Netherlands has now reached 200,000. This means that these people, in three of the last 10 years, were living under the poverty level. They are mainly single mothers and other one-income families, low earning self-employed people, fishermen, farmers and others working in agriculture.
