Publisher's Summary

The welfare reform law signed by President Clinton in August 1996 was designed to "end welfare as we know it." To a striking degree, it did: the number of people getting a welfare check dropped by more than half nationwide.

Yet moving people off welfare is not the same as moving them out of poverty. Most single-parent households that left poverty increased their income slightly but remained poor. After Welfare explores the impact of welfare reform on women and children in Memphis, TN, Camden, NJ, and in Wyoming. The documentary also visits Oklahoma City, where efforts are being made to promote marriage as a solution to poverty.
