Midas Releases Issue Briefs To Advance Financial Security
Financial insecurity and inequality is at an all-time high, especially in Massachusetts. As a recognized leader on the issues of consumer financial protection and asset building, Midas promotes advocacy and research at the state and federal level to address the systemic issues that lead to financial insecurity. Through Midas’ work and from our member collaborative of 25+ community organizations, we’ve seen a rise of instability in debt collections and employment for lower wage and entry level workers. This instability is exacerbated by the lack of quality financial education at the K-12 level, leaving young adults unable to make sound financial decisions that continue as they face more complex decisions. The impact of these three issues are reviewed in briefs produced by Midas in support of legislation that invests and empowers Massachusetts families.
