A recent report from the Cato Institute about welfare in America has been receiving a great deal of media attention. Here are links to two very interesting articles that take a deeper look at the report, and a link to a report that Athens County Job and Family Services published.
Here is a link from Business Insider to an article titled "There's A New Study That Says Welfare Pays Better Than Work — Here's Why It's Total Nonsense"
Here is a link from the Toledo Blade to the editorial titled "Easy chair or safety net? A new study says welfare discourages work, in Ohio and across the country.
