Welfare Reform Leaving More In Poverty

Post by Guest on Wed Aug 24, 2011 8:01 am

“Today, everybody is expected to work,” said Sheila Zedlewski, an economist at the Urban Institute and co-author of an institute study released last week that examines the consequences of welfare reform during the recession. “The problem is finding a job is incredibly hard.”

Since the beginning of the recession in late 2007, the nation’s unemployment rate has increased by 88 percent, while welfare caseloads have grown just 14 percent, according to the Urban Institute report.

Experts say this disparity reflects the inadequacy of remaining welfare programs in the face of a veritable epidemic of joblessness. During a period of national distress, fewer and fewer people have been able to secure help to meet their basic needs, according to the report.

As the resident Repub that article is very true in fact I remember Ted Kennedy when tht argument was taking place saying to the effect that yes it needed reform and yes there were a lot of free loaders but that during a good economic cycle reform would work but that several bad cycles would place the disadvantged in a worse place and cost more then we saved through reform; he rgued that the fraud was cheaper then the fix in a down cycle. Guess he was right to bad he's not getting the credit for it
