Changing Work Ethic and Welfare Dependence through Welfare Reform: The 100-Hour Rule Waiver Experiment for AFDC-U.
Lewin, Alisa C.
Evaluation Review, v25 n3 p370-88 Jun 2001
Tested assumptions about welfare dependency and work by waiving a rule allowing primary wage-earners to work more than 100 hours a week without losing welfare eligibility. Results from an impact analysis that considered 3,591 experimental and control families indicate that the rule waiver had no effect on primary wage earners' work activity and earnings. (SLD)
