This report pulls together the results of welfare reform research and other relevant studies. The report shows that in the Midwest, as nationally, welfare rolls plummeted during the 1990s, and most of those who left welfare went to work. Work supports--such as child care, food stamps, and the Earned Income Tax Credit--have helped thousands of working families make ends meet. But many of the jobs recipients took are part time or short term, and wages are low. As a result, many working families still face serious economic hardships.
