Summary: Hidden Costs (2004)


CPI Publication


In this study we look at the “hidden costs” to taxpayers that are incurred when the wages and benefits of San Diego’s largest employment sectors are insufficient to meet families’ basic needs. We also highlight the rising costs to local hospitals of uncompensated care for the growing number of uninsured, as these costs are ultimately passed on to consumers, taxpayers and businesses.
