Lincoln Groves ’15 PhD (PA) featured in the Washington Post for welfare study

alum-news-buttonLincoln Groves recently had his study on welfare reform featured in a Washington Post article, “Why one researcher worries about welfare reform’s impact on white men.” The study examines workforce data from 1989 to 2002, and Groves finds that many single white men with a high school diploma or less responded negatively to the bundle of work supports targeting single mothers during welfare reform by dropping out of the formal labor market. Groves is currently a fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Institute for Research on Poverty and is a former Graduate Associate at the Center for Policy Research at the Maxwell School.
