Influence of Welfare Reform and Child Care Problems on the Detailed Employment Experiences of Low-income Mothers
Press, Julie E.;
||A project concentrating on the hypothesis that child care is responsible, in part, for disrupting the employment and economic self-reliance of low-skilled mothers. The study is based on the Philadelphia Survey of Child Care and Work--a one hour, quantitative, door-to-door survey of 707 Black, White and Hispanic mothers of children under age 13. Key questions include: (1) How do child care characteristics and constraints affect success at work?; (2) What are the effects of policies associated with welfare, work, and child care?; (3) How are work outcomes different for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) mothers compared with a control group of working mothers?; and (4) How are the answers to these questions different for mothers from different racial/ethnic groups, neighborhoods, family characteristics, and social resources?
