Employment Contexts and Disadvantaged Workers. Phase 1, Final Report.
Bureau of Social Science Research, Inc., Washington, DC.
The first phase of a two-phase study of the employment success of welfare recipients trained and placed under the Work-Incentive (WIN) program is summarized. During this phase the methodology for the study was developed, including questionnaire structure, model field procedures, and study design. Preliminary instruments and procedures were tested in Denver, San Diego, San Bernadino, and Washington, D.C. on the basis of which the questionnaires and research design were revised and retested several times. Although conclusions on such aspects of employment as vocational adjustment and employer attitudes will not be made until Phase II, the field experiences of Phase I did result in considerable data on WIN placements.
