Reforming Welfare by Rewarding Work: One State's Successful Experiment

Synopsis

"In the late 1980s, Governor Rudy Perpich gathered a group of citizen experts to redesign Minnesota's welfare system, and a burst of innovation resulted in the groundbreaking and successful pilot Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP). Reforming Welfare by Rewarding Work intertwines the story of MFIP's development with harrowing - and enlightening - firsthand accounts of three families' experiences on welfare. Dave Hage tells of Meg, a mother of three who until recently had a job and a husband and is now trying to get back to work; Patty, a mother who is endeavoring to restore order to her life as she flees a violent relationship; and Lucille, who is supporting two teenage daughters after a divorce and is herself a daughter of a welfare recipient."
