Using Company-Owned Housing and Workfare to Fill the Need for Low-Wage Workers: A Solution or Step Backward?
Belcher, John R.; Rejent, Deborah
Social Work, v38 n3 p297-304 May 1993
Notes that U.S. business community recently has been unable to find adequate supply of low-wage workers, possibly because of shortage of low-income housing and unwillingness of individuals to work for low wages. Reviews use of company-owned housing, describes current experiences with workfare, and concludes by noting tendency of these approaches to impinge on people's self-determination. (Author/NB)
