Income and Hardship: Employment

Brief

Income and Hardship: Employment

January 1, 1999

Abstract

Helping families and individuals become self-sufficient through increased employment is a major goal of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, as well as many other federal and state income support programs. Many people receiving public support now face benefit reductions or termination if they are not working or preparing for work. Among those affected are adults in families receiving support from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program and childless adults receiving food stamps.
