The Welfare-to-Work Grants Program: Enrollee Outcomes One Year After Program Entry. How Many Hours per Week Did Enrollees Work?


WtW enrollees who were employed one year after program entry typically put in a full workweek on their primary job. The top panel of Exhibit IV.6 shows that the mean hours of work per week on the principal job ranged from 32 to 37 across the 11 study sites. In no site did more than 10 percent of employed enrollees work fewer than 20 hours per week on their principal job (Appendix Exhibit B.12). This finding further substantiates our earlier observation that the absence of any employment, rather than inadequate hours of work by those who were employed, accounted for almost all of the enrollees who were not working at levels consistent with the TANF 30-hour standard.
