Reforming Welfare by Rewarding Work
In the late 1980s, Governor Rudy Perpich gathered a group of citizen experts to redesign Minnesota’s welfare system, and a burst of innovation resulted in the groundbreaking and successful pilot Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP). Reforming Welfare by Rewarding Work intertwines MFIP’s development with harrowing—and enlightening—firsthand accounts of three families’s experiences on welfare, and asserts that a true antipoverty program is crucial—and achievable—in America.
