Welfare Reform Anniversary

"The overwhelming majority of unemployed Americans, who are now walking the streets and receiving private and public relief, would indefinitely prefer to work.  We can take a vast army of these unemployed out into healthful surroundings.  We can eliminate to some extent at least the threat that enforced idleness brings to spiritual and moral stability."


Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from speech titled Three Essentials for Unemployment Relief, March 21, 1933

August 22, marked the 14th Anniversary of Welfare Reform in this country.  Click here to learn more about the history of welfare and how far it has come to.
