This paper is an in-depth examination of the public's opinion of government assistance programs that deal with job finding and a guaranteed standard of living. It includes a discussion of the 1996 Welfare to Work At and how it was received by the American public. The writer examines the relevant literature to test the hypothesis that the profile of an American who supports government assistance in job-finding will be dependent on their race, sex, and income level.
From the Paper:"In the late nineteen-seventies and the early eighties, the United States faced high rates of unemployment coupled with a recession and high rates of inflation (Milkis 1999). To help ease the percentage of unemployed Americans, the government established programs to assist those who were out of work, especially for those in minority communities, to find new employment. Programs such as "Welfare to Work" and "Community Jobs," have remained through the past thirty years, still helping those in need find gainful pay. However, in today's booming economy, I expect more Americans are wondering why their tax dollars are being used to fund programs for people who, in their assumption, could easily find a job on their own."
