The Impacts Of Supported Work On AFDC Recipients
The National Supported Work Demonstration
From the outset ofthe Supported Work Demonstration design, it was expected that the program would be least effective in improving employment and increasing economic independence among the AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) target group. This expectation was based, in part, on the general observation that women tend to have greater difficulty finding employment than do men and tha those who do find employment often are paid lower wages than are their male counterparts. The pessimism was also attributable to the fact that work incentives are lowered as a result ofthe availability of the welfare support through AFDC.
