The American workforce has been remade over the last 50 years. Among those negatively affected are fathers with limited education and skills. It is more difficult for them to find work and to earn living wages. Although the child support system works well for most families, it adds to the woes of the most economically vulnerable noncustodial parents. It punishes far too many for being poor rather than working with them to help solve poverty. It's time for meaningful child support reform that recognizes the existence of the remade workforce and works in the best interests of the lowest income fathers and their children.
