TWO ANTI-POVERTY STRATEGIES--NEW CAREERS VS THE GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME.
RIESSMAN, FRANK
THE CLOWARD-PIVEN PLAN FOR PRECIPITATING A WELFARE CRISIS TO BRING ABOUT A GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME IS CRITICIZED AS AN ANTIPOVERTY STRATEGY. BASED ON THE ORGANIZATION OF THE WEAKEST SEGMENTS OF THE POOR, ITS EFFECTIVENESS AS A LONG-TERM DISRUPTION OF THE POVERTY CYCLE IS QUESTIONED. A NATIONAL NEW CAREERS MOVEMENT IS PROPOSED AS AN ALTERNATIVE STRATEGY WHICH COULD HAVE WIDESPREAD IMPACT ON PROFESSIONAL SYSTEMS, WELFARE COLONIALISM, NEGRO-WHITE UNITY, ETC. IT WOULD INVOLVE POTENTIAL LEADERS WHO COULD EVENTUALLY ASSUME CONTROL AND PROVIDE THEIR OWN MOMENTUM. BASIC TO THE NEW CAREERS THEORY IS THE REORGANIZATION OF SERVICE POSITIONS SO THAT PEOPLE WITH LITTLE OR NO TRAINING CAN LEARN ON THE JOB AND RISE IN THE OCCUPATIONAL HIERARCHY, WITH THE ULTIMATE OPTION OF BECOMING PROFESSIONALS.
