A volume in the American Sociological Association's Issue Series on Research and Social Policy. The welfare reform legislation of 1996 created wide interest in efforts to move families from welfare to work. This volume in the Series provides information on the prospects for employment opportunities and long-term transition of welfare recipients to jobs. With facts and not conjecture, it addresses the following questions: What do we know about the patterns of welfare to work? What are the realities of the labor market for welfare recipients? What is life like for families who leave welfare for work? What are the likely effects of welfare time limits?
