Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) – Can Work Alter Welfare Recipients’ Beliefs?

Authors:Peter Gottschalk

Using the Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) as the primary data source, this working paper investigates whether employment will lead welfare recipients to revise their beliefs about how they will be treated in the labour market. This study controls for the fact that participants with more favourable attitudes are more likely to secure employment, and finds that the earnings supplement from the experimental Self-Sufficiency Project produces changes in attitudes.
