Ilana Berger, project coordinator of Families United for Racial and Economic Equality, said black welfare recipients are more likely than white workers to be given dead-end jobs.She cited a study by the Center for Public Administration and Policy at Virginia Tech, which found white welfare recipients were given more support and job options than African Americans."The majority of people of color are given a broom and a mop," Berger said.
Berger said advocates of workfare had succeeded in framing the issue as one of individual failings or a "culture of poverty," rather than as an economic issue.
"The vast majority of people on welfare are doing everything they possibly can to get off.The barriers they face have nothing to do with unwillingness to work, but with systemic problems in country; the proliferation of low-wage jobs, the state of the economy, the lack of childcare or healthcare systems," Berger said.
