Legal Momentum applauds the Subcommittee for holding a hearing on the role of education and training in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. We agree with Chairman McDermott that TANF must be “changed from ‘work first’ to ‘work best’.”  Work First has helped perpetuate single mother poverty and single mother employment in low wage “women’s work.” We urge Congress and the Administration to move forward rapidly to amend the TANF statute to embrace the Work Best approach.
