Excerpt from Much to Blame, Vol. 1 of 3: A Tale Her to teach it to her little brothers and sisters when they should arrive. At their leisure hours the governess and Julia were expected to assist Lady Villeroy in working for the family, knitting rugs, bed-side carpets, and so forth. Lady Villeroy being what is commonly called a notable ma naging woman, and some persons more just than elegant, used to bestow on her the common, vulgar appellation Of a nip, or a skin-flint - that is an avaricious, mean woman. Hitherto poor Julia had slept in the largest room on the second floor, both in the town and country house; but now that room was to be set apart for a nur sery, and she and the governess, a well born woman, whose poverty, 'but not her will, consented to be an inmate of this establishment, were obliged to sleep in a small and almost unwholesome room adj oin ing. The dress, too, of Julia underwent a gradual, but complete metamorphosis; Julia. Was inclined to be both tall and fat for her age and On pretence of tightening her into a proper shape, the child wore.

Blame Welfare Ignore Poverty And Inequality

With the passage of the 1996 welfare reform, not only welfare, but poverty and inequality have disappeared from the political discourse. The decline in the welfare rolls has been hailed as a success. This book challenges that assumption. It argues that while many single mothers left welfare, they have joined the working poor, and fail to make a decent living. The book examines the persistent demonization of poor single-mother families; the impact of the low-wage market on perpetuating poverty and inequality; and the role of the welfare bureaucracy in defining deserving and undeserving poor. It argues that the emphasis on family values - marriage promotion, sex education and abstinence - is misguided and diverts attention from the economic hardships low-income families face. The book proposes an alternative approach to reducing poverty and inequality that centers on a children's allowance as basic income support coupled with jobs and universal child care.
