Business Week for Dec. 22 has a depressing "Commentary" (p. 38) on how much
worse off welfare mothers are under the "reforms" that have forced them
into
the workforce with few or no skills and no access to subsidized childcare.
The only encouraging thing is that a leading business journal has an editor
(Aaron Bernstein) who is willing to talk bluntly about the impending
crisis.
Will leaders in the business community pay attention?
