O Efeito do Programa Bolsa Família sobre a Oferta de Trabalho das Mães
AbstractThe impact of the Bolsa FamÃlia Program on the labor supply of working mothers - This paper investigates the existence of a possible adverse incentive on the labor supply and weekly working hours of beneficiary mothers of the Bolsa FamÃlia Program. Three control groups are analyzed using propensity-score matching to compare non-beneficiary mothers to beneficiary mothers. The results show that there is a wealth effect related to the value of the benefits, given that the larger the benefit, the less active beneficiary mothers are in the labor market. Nonetheless, the net effect is positive, showing that there is a substitution effect due to a reduction in the childrenÂ´s labor supply, a rise in the mother's available time, as well as decreasing the stigma.
