Welfare Recipients' Perspectives on the System and Its Reform.

Welfare Recipients' Perspectives on the System and Its Reform. This book provides a superb overview of the subject without it being too elementary.

This book really puts welfare recipients' situations into perspective

Its interesting to hear how they maneuver the system to tailor to their needs even though the practice themselves still leaves them grossly under water in terms of financial "stability". I walked away thinking about how beneficial it would be for inflation to apply towards welfare benefits. This book really puts welfare recipients' situations into perspective. It personalizes their situations and gives insight into the kind of people that recieve welfare. It's a good book for people that just can't understand "what kind of people" are on welfare.

as they try to leave the welfare system. They discuss the importance of a livable wage and health insurance in providing the needed security to leave welfare for good.

Karen Seccombe's book "So You Think I Drive a Cadillac?" is particularly successful in one of the author's primary goals: bringing the voices of welfare recipients into the discussion about their lives. Similar to the seminal book published two years earlier, Making Ends Meet by Kathryn Edin and Laura Lein, Seccombe poignantly describes, through the stories of her informants, the realities of life on welfare and the tactics impoverished single mothers must use to survive. The book is readable, informative and convincing.

This down-to-earth look at the welfare system provides readers with stories from welfare recipients themselves and from those who recently left welfare for work: how they got onto welfare, what the reality of welfare (and welfare reform) is for them, issues in raising their families, their plans, hopes, and dreams are for the future, and some of the struggles they face as they try to leave the welfare system.

Welfare recipients who were interviewed by the author in Florida and Oregon share their perspectives on work requirements, family caps, time limits, and other features of the new welfare reform (TANF) program. They discuss the importance of a livable wage and health insurance in providing the needed security to leave welfare for good. These qualitative interviews are theoretically grounded, and supplemented with up-to-date statewide and national data on welfare reform and its consequences.

The author says, “Underneath the political rhetoric and welfare statistics are real live human beings who are trying to make sense out of their lives.” Their voices provide a crucial counterpoint to the politicians and policy “experts” who have shaped the policy reform initiative. They show us that the so-called welfare problem is related to the insecurity of low-tier work in the United States.

good infor for people who think you get a lot of free stuff and have it easy if your poor. It sucks to be poor, and nobody who is mentally well enjoys it and says yeah this is how I want to live! I love to struggle and beg for every square of toilet paper.

I chose this book for a book report. The content was very informative. Passed on to another student for a good read. Stigmatizes people who receive food stamps.

I did not realize how the welfare system "really" works for people nor did I understand why it was so hard for people to get away from/off of the system. I had to read this book for an assignment for one of my classes and I am glad that I did this opened my eyes to a whole new aspect of how people really live day to day.
This book is a must read for anyone working in or planning to work in the social work field, or anyone interested in the reality of being on the welfare system. Incredibly eye opening. Breaks down the stereotypes of people on social welfare programs and provides an accurate perspective based on statistics and experiences of those individuals who rely on welfare to survive.
