    This description of Steve Bigari's work was prepared when Steve Bigari was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
    Low-wage workers in the United States are often one crisis away from extreme poverty. Steve Bigari recruits employers to take a lead role in addressing the problems that make workers vulnerable, breaking the cycle of persistent poverty by helping workers achieve personal stability and develop the skills they need to get a foothold on the ladder to the middle class.
