“How is it that a solid work ethic is not an adequate defense against extreme poverty?”
Kathryn Edin, $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America

“In no state today does a full-time job paying minimum wage allow a family to afford a one- or two-bedroom apartment at fair market rent.”
Kathryn Edin, $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America

“Of the $16.5 billion the federal government transfers to states for TANF, more than $11 billion is siphoned off for other uses, sometimes to fund a state’s child welfare system. Strained state budgets are thus eased. TANF has become welfare for the states rather than aid for families”
