Georgia Women Need a Georgia Work Credit

Contact Your State Legislator Today

Georgia is missing out on a tool used by 29 other states to strengthen hardworking families, boost local economies and help communities thrive. A Georgia Work Credit (or state Earned Income Tax Credit) provides a bottom-up tax cut to workers earning low wages such as sales clerks, construction workers and nurses.

The Georgia Work Credit would be a powerful boost to the wages of working women in our state and provide ripple benefits to families. The credit can provide a hand up for 900,000 women in Georgia working their way into the middle class, over half of whom are the sole or primary earner for their family. Of those, an estimated 770,000 working mothers would benefit from being able to keep more of the money they earn to support their children.
