Title File 031
Transcript mothers would be forced to "work off their grants which is work without wage, without fringe benefits or bargaining rights, and without dignity. HR 9030 further requires those individuals and families without income to wait weeks or even months before even the inadequate grant is available. We strongly support a welfare reform program developed from on-going consultation with persons who will be impacted. This program should 1) be consistent with the National Academy of Science recommendation that no individual or family living standard should be lower than half the median family income level for substantial periods (after taxes) and this income should not fall below the government defined poverty level of family income even for shorter periods; 2) help sustain the family unit; and 3) insure that women on welfare and other low income women who choose to work not be forced into jobs paying less than the prevailing wage. In order to improve the status of women, the following actions should be taken: a. To insure that welfare and other poor are not discriminated against as an economic class, affirmative action guidelines should be drawn up to provide that all employers who are recipients of Federal and/or State contract monies be required to show that they are hiring recipients. b. There should be targeting of funds by local CETA advisory boards for the placement and training of women in non-traditional higher paying jobs, consistent with the original mandate. c. The Department of Labor should make a study of jobs and wages based on a standard of comparable worth, and speedily move the implementation of that study in all government positions. d. Unions should devote additional energy to the organization of women to upgrade pay and working conditions for women in traditional employment. Quality child care should be a mandated Title XX service, available to all families on an ability to pay basis throughout training, education, job search and employment. Congress should encourage education of women by insuring that Federal and other education grants do not reduce an individual's or family's eligibility for public assistance in AFDC or any other program. Comprehensive support services and social services must be provided and adequately funded. 29
