Allan Fung on Welfare & Poverty
More work/volunteer requirements in welfare benefits
Allan will be proposing stronger work requirements for the�RI works program, or as many people know it, welfare. Currently, "job searching" counts as meeting the 20-hour a week requirement. Allan will strengthen the requirements so that�any
able-bodied adult, aged 18-59,�will�be required to either work,�be�enrolled in a job training program, or perform community service at least�20 hours a week to receive�welfare�benefits. Exemptions would be proposed.
