The Employment Retention and Advancement Project Early Results from Four Sites
Bloom, Dan; Hendra, Richard; Martinson, Karin; Scrivener, Susan
Millions of welfare recipients have entered the labor force in the past decade, but surveys show that many remain in unstable, low-paying jobs that offer few opportunities for advancement. This report presents early evidence on the effectiveness of four diverse programs designed to help current or former welfare recipients work more steadily and increase their earnings. The programs are part of the Employment Retention and Advancement (ERA) project, which is testing 15 such programs nationwide. Supplemental tables are appended.
