"The Failure of Welfare Reform" - Slate. 06/01/2016.

This article looks at how Clinton-era welfare reform that emphasized welfare to work has worsened the plight of the poorest Americans. Although Bob Schoeni found some positive results - the creation of TANF was associated with about a 2 percentage point decline in the poverty rate for less educated women - Luke Shaefer found that the number of American households with children that got by on less that $2 in cash per person grew 159% between 1996 and 2011.
