Quick Attachments to the Workforce: An Ethnographic Analysis of a Transition from Welfare to Low-Wage Jobs.
Riemer, Frances J.
Social Work Research, v21 n4 p225-32 Dec 1997
Examines a work initiative that moved welfare recipients into jobs as nurse assistants at a geriatric facility. The women's stories describe a welfare-to-work program in practice and illustrate how and why earnest efforts to mediate poverty resulted instead in the continued marginalization and stigmatization of poor people.
