Racing up to the Bottom: Work and Welfare in the US, Working Paper 001 Open Access
This paper describes the work support system, estimates the income provided by work support programs in the fifty American states and the District of Columbia (D.C.), and comments about the potential and limitations of the system as a means to alleviate poverty among poor workers. The income provided by work support programs varies from place to place and according to family structure and work patterns. Of course, the extent of participation in work support programs is also a crucial consideration. Total income provided by the system is estimated as the sum of earned income for full time, minimum wage work and the estimated value of benefits provided by work support programs for a family of three with two children.
