The Lessons of W-2.
Sherman, Amy L.
Public Interest, n140 p36-48 Sum 2000
Describes the impact of Wisconsin Works (W-2), a work-first welfare reform effort that has created significant welfare enrollment reduction. While critics claimed it would devastate inner cities, poor families are faring better. W-2 built on diversion and incentives, opening up welfare administration to competition. Despite many successes, W-2 has had some hardships. W-2 participants need compassionate support to succeed. (SM)
