A Study of Low-Income Families: Implications for the WIN (Work Incentive) Program. Final Report.
Macek, Albert J.; And Others
Data from a nationwide study of low-income people are considered as they apply to the WIN program. The study tested major assumptions upon which WIN is based. The data tend to support the objectives and methods of the WIN program expressed in the original legislation. The analysis summarizes the relevant findings into principles, which support the idea that the nonworking, welfare-dependent, low-income heads of household should be permitted to have experience working. Established laws of learning are used to suggest ways of achieving the objectives of WIN. (NTIS)
