Welfare to Work in den USA - Das Beispiel Wisconsin


  • Wolfgang Ochel


Der Welfare-to-Work-Ansatz der USA besteht im Wesentlichen aus zwei Elementen. Er beinhaltet zum einen die Gewährung eines »Earned Income Tax Credit« (EITC) für Beschäftigte im Niedriglohnbereich, zum anderen verfolgen die USA seit 1996 einen Workfare-Ansatz für Sozialhilfeempfänger. In diesem Beitrag wird die Umsetzung dieses Ansatzes im Bundesstaat Wisconsin vorgestellt.
