EPI is one of the most respected liberal policy institutes in the United States. They publish research and opinion pieces on the labor market, with a focus on improving the welfare of low and middle-income families. [Note: Do not confuse this institute with the anti-living wage public relations effort, the "Employment Policies Institute." For more information onthis group, see: "Employment Policies Institute: Public Relations Nonprofits".]
