Beyond Welfare-to-Work: Helping Low-Wage Workers Maintain Their Jobs and Advance in the Workforce

Jennifer Freeman and Judith Combes Taylor

The U.S. Department of Labor asked JFF to develop two discussion papers to assist program development and practice in cities that were funded by the department's Welfare-to-Work program and that had participated in the department's Future @ Work Initiative. These papers describe demand-driven approaches to helping welfare recipients enter the workforce and move beyond poverty to family-supporting jobs, while supporting the human resources needs of hiring firms.
