The Work Incentive Program. Eighth Annual Report to the Congress on Employment and Training under Title IV of the Social Security Act, October 1, 1976-September 30, 1977.
Department of Labor, Washington, DC.
The activities presented in this Work Incentive (WIN) program report are those designed to assist the movement of employable Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) recipients from welfare to work and economic independence. The first of seven sections presents statistics on WIN programs, including (1) intake, (2) individuals employed, (3) job entries, and (4) employment programs. Section 2 reviews some statistics and reports that in 1977 over 420,000 WIN participants entered jobs or training programs. Section 3 describes the WIN AFDC relationship and the WIN population by sex, race, age, and years of school completed. For example, nearly three-fourths of WIN registrants in 1977 were women; somewhat more than half were white. The fourth section reviews the general WIN services and the particular employment, training, and supportive services. The WIN job entries and hourly entry wages are reported in section 5. Program funding is discussed in section 6. The final section focuses on the WIN research, demonstration, and evaluation efforts. For instance, 1977 research studies examined the WIN population and the best ways to provide assistance to that group. The appendix contains statistical data on WIN participants. A glossary is included. (For a related document see ED 149 046.) (CSS)
