Summary

This working paper examines possible long-run effects of the Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) on labour force attachment. It looks at whether the requirement to find full-time work in the first year of the program in order to receive the SSP supplement caused participants to take lower quality jobs and subsequently leave these jobs.
