"Are the Poor Different?" A Comparison of Work Behavior and Attitudes among the Urban Poor and non-poor
Davidson, Chandler; Gaitz, Charles M.
Social Problems, 22, 2, 229-245, Dec 74
In order to determine whether poverty is the result of the work orientation of the poor, a secondary analysis of data obtained from a stratified sample of the Houston population was conducted, controlling for age, sex, and ethnicity: the findings are interpreted as casting doubt on the "culture of overty" hypothesis as it relates to work habits and attitudes.
