Office of Pedro Pierluisi, 6/11 (“In the news.” 2009. http://pierluisi.house.gov/NEWS/06-11-09-CREDIT.html . Accessed 7/22) “The EITC was established to reduce poverty and increase the incentive to work. The EITC has a proven track record of success. Research has shown that the credit has helped reduce welfare caseloads and increase single mothers’ employment rates in the 50 states. Puerto Rico would likely see similar social and economic benefits if its workers qualified for the credit. There is no principled basis for excluding Puerto Rico from the EITC program on the ground that Island residents do not pay federal taxes on their local income, since the EITC is available to residents of the states who do not earn enough to have a federal tax liability,” the Resident Commissioner said.

Spring 2005. http://ejm.lsc.gov/EJMIssue8/povertyinpuertorico.htm .] Yet amidst the vibrant colored picture of the island’s most marketable attributes is a darker reality. Traveling inland into the modest communities where most natives reside reveals a more sobering picture: that of a people struggling with the day-to- day problems of poverty. Despite the rambunctious demeanor of a citizenry always ready for a festival (there are more than

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
