Welfare To Work: Ten Years Later...Again

Previously, I recounted my experiences on the front line of the Welfare to Work movement of the 90s.

In today's AJC, current Commissioner of Labor Michael Thurmond is interviewed about his role in the leading the Department of Human Services.

Welfare reform is a process, not a one-time event. The generational
problems, which welfare was, requires generational solutions. You're talking
about 60 years of policy. There's no way you can correct the pathologies and
problems in 10 years or even 20 years.
