Although they felt some pressure to participate, most of the AFDC mothers studied viewed the Work Incentive Program as an opportunity for self-advancement. Consistent with the findings of other studies and with WIN statistics, few of these women obtained jobs through the program. This study documents an infrequently considered consequence of WIN's failure to deliver jobs-the frustration of the women's own aspirations.
