Ending the Entitlement of Poor Mothers, Expanding the Claims of Poor Employed Parents: Gender, Race, Class in Contemporary US Social Policy
AbstractThe author wants to note that welfare reform is but one part of what is happening politically to gender relations, to women, and to poor mothers, even within the system of income support, in the United States. Of particular importance within income support is the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which is having noticeable and positive effects on the incomes of poor employed parents, especially single mothers. In this paper, the author will not go into why the EITC was expanded. However, she will make reference to the ways in which the EITC and associated employment-related policies are affecting poor mothers.
