We the poor people : work, poverty, and welfare by Joel F Handler( )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current welfare reforms - including recently enacted federal legislation - are largely symbolic politics, argue two experts in this important new book. According to Joel F. Handler and Yeheskel Hasenfeld, the real problem we face is not the spread of welfare but the spread of poverty among the working poor, a group that includes most welfare recipients. The surest way to solve the problem is to create jobs and supplement low-wage work. The authors offer proposals that would make it possible for individuals to support themselves and their families through working and that would establish a safety net for the relatively few individuals who are unable to do so
Blame welfare, ignore poverty and inequality by Joel F Handler( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: With the passage of the 1996 welfare reform, not only welfare, but poverty and inequality have disappeared from the political discourse. The decline in the welfare rolls has been hailed as a success. This book challenges that assumption. It argues that while many single mothers left welfare, they have joined the working poor, and fail to make a decent living. The book examines the persistent demonization of poor single-mother families; the impact of the low-wage market on perpetuating poverty and inequality; and the role of the welfare bureaucracy in defining deserving and undeserving poor. It argues that the emphasis on family values - marriage promotion, sex education and abstinence - is misguided and diverts attention from the economic hardships low-income families face. The book proposes an alternative approach to reducing poverty and inequality that centers on a children's allowance as basic income support coupled with jobs and universal child care

Social enterprises : an organizational perspective( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social enterprises have been a growing phenomenon around the world in the past decade. The authors of this volume argue that they represent a unique type of organization. By combining social goals with a business orientation, both critical for their mission and survival, they represent a breed of organization with two kinds of logic that in the past were not perceived as belonging under the same organizational roof. The business logic, with its focus on competition and private ownership, did not seem a fitting context in which to deal with social issues or problems. These are traditionally dealt with by a service logic that emphasizes a charitable, empathetic orientation. Putting these two orientations together calls for creative organizational solutions, especially if these organizations are to be stable and sustainable. Social Enterprises presents a first attempt to do that. An organizational perspective of social enterprises allows us to analyze issues such as their governing structure, their modes of operation and their marketing strategies, and begins to formulate some theoretical constructs on how these entities can survive and thrive. This volume provides not only a theoretical and empirical basis to examine these issues, but an international perspective as well

Manpower placement: service delivery for the hard-to-employ by Yeheskel Hasenfeld( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic aim of this report is to suggest a strategic framework for the transformation of manpower placement services (mps) from a reactive, precarious organization into an active and vital service delivery system. The main characteristics of mps are analyzed from a systems perspective and organizational resources and structure of services for the hard to employ are surveyed. It is pointed out that, following the systems perspective, changes in the supportive subsystem will not produce immediate results in the service patterns but that new operative goals and service technology are needed for both clients and employers. The basic change strategy should be to expand the operative goals of the agency with the twofold aim of improving its services and increasing its importance in the community. An intelligence system is proposed which would fulfill three related functions: to monitor the external relevant environment of the agency, to provide an internal audit of staff and client activities, and to evaluate the agency's outputs. The effectiveness of mps is dependent upon its ability to develop a multilevel service delivery system that breaks away from the narrow conception of matching persons with jobs. (Author/SA)

Detroit Area Study, 1983 : Attitudes and Experiences in Detroit by Yeheskel Hasenfeld( )

2 editions published in 1990 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Detroit Area Study explored views on welfare as well as contact and experiences with government welfare agencies. The survey sought opinions on a gamut of welfare issues such as the level of government spending on Aid for Dependent Children, unemployment benefits, social security and food stamps, government aid to minorities and to communities losing industrial plants, whether government aid to the poor tends to make people lazy and dependent or helps to reduce crime and urban unrest, whether farmers, veterans, and home-owners were deserving of government aid or tax relief, and whether the government should guarantee everyone a minimum income or provide medical care or college tuition to the needy or to everyone as a matter of right. Respondents were asked to report on their encounters with public welfare agencies, including reasons for the contact, number of contacts during the last year, pre-contact expectations about services that would be received, whether or not needed services were actually obtained, and satisfaction with the way their requests were handled. Other items covered by the survey are political identification, vote in the 1980 presidential elections, trust and confidence in the federal government, and opinions on waste and inefficiency in various federal government programs including protection of the environment and national defense. Additional information gathered by the survey includes number of children and adults residing in the household, household income and its sources, respondents' age, sex, race, marital status, religious preference, and income, and the education, employment status, occupation, and industry of respondents and their spouses ...
