Summary
"With the passage of the 1996 welfare reform, not only welfare but also poverty and inequality have disappeared from the political discourse. The decline in the welfare rolls has been hailed as a success. This book challenges that assumption. It argues that although many single mothers left welfare, they have joined the working poor and fail to make a decent living. The book examines the persistent demonization of poor single-mother families, the impact of the low-wage market on perpetuating poverty and inequality, and the role of the welfare bureaucracy in defining deserving and undeserving poor. It argues that the emphasis on family values - marriage promotion, sex education, and abstinence - is misguided and diverts attention from the economic hardships low-income families face. The book proposes an alternative approach to reducing poverty and inequality that centers on a children's allowance as basic income support coupled with jobs and universal child care." --Book Jacket
