This paper takes a look at the issues relating to welfare reform in NYC, according to Mark Levitan's article, "It Did Happen Here". According to the paper, Levitan argues that even though NYC has experienced a significant rise in "working poor", those who have jobs still remain below the poverty line. This issue is a controversial one, because many people believe that any job is preferable to welfare.
