In this article, the writer analyzes Harris' work "Work and Welfare among Single Mothers in Poverty". The writer discusses that Harris looks at the relationship between work and welfare for poor, female-headed families. The writer maintains that meticulously researched, Harris' examination of this issue represents a significant revelation into the lives of women among the working poor.
From the Paper:"The author probes some of the myths and realities of the so-called "welfare mom," attempting to use real data sets and statistical analysis to draw some realistic conclusions about the lives of these women who live under the poverty line. Do they live up to the myths culture has assigned to them: the lazy, greedy woman who has as many kids as possible in order to milk the system for a larger monthly check? Or is there more complexity to their lives?"
