Measuring Wage Growth Among Former Welfare Recipients
We study the rate of wage growth among long-term welfare recipients in the self-sufficiency Project (SSP) who were induced by the financial incentives of the program to enter the work force. We find that single parents who began working in response to the SSP incentive are younger, less educated, have more young children, and have less positive attitudes toward work than those who would have been working regardless of the SSP.
