Abstract

In an effort to better understand relationships among poverty, education, and work, this article uses data from an ethnographic study of two companies in which welfare recipients obtained employment to examine the move from welfare to work. The analysis delineates 23 men's and women's transitions from welfare poor to working poor, and focuses on the ways welfare-generated identities shaped employment training pedagogies, the social organization of the workplaces, and individuals' resistance and accommodation practices at work.
