20 years after welfare reform, what have we really learned about alleviating poverty? (video)

If you missed it last week, the good folks at the NC Budget & Tax Center did a multi-part blog series about how poverty has changed in America in the 20 years since the passage of welfare reform.

BTC policy analyst Tazra Mitchell also talked about the consequences of reform and the need to address wage stagnation over the weekend on News and Views with Chris Fitzsimon.

Click below for a short video clip from Mitchell’s radio interview with NC Policy Watch or to access the full podcast.
