Rate this:
The first book to portray women who went off welfare as a result of the Clinton welfare reform process not as victims of an oppressive system but as success stories, who managed, with low-wage employment and income supplements and subsidies, to pull their families into a substantially improved standard of living. Without whitewashing the results indeed, Cherry examines teen pregnancies, domestic abuse, social isolation, and the widening income gapthis riveting inside look at on-the-ground welfare reform success also sets forth concrete policy recommendations that build on what already works.
