Sheila D. Collins (Author) Gertrude Schaffner Goldberg (Author)
Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.
DescriptionThe authors argue that the personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, popularly known as welfare "reform", offers neither work opportunity nor real reform. In repealing the entitlement to welfare and failing to create an entitlement to work - at the same time as it imposes strict, time-limited work requirements - Washington has, in effect, written a new Poor Law.
