It's Time to Incentivize — Not Penalize

The unfortunate reality is, low-income moms who receive government assistance are penalized for working. As soon as a mom enters or returns to the workforce, the benefits she depends on to support her family (i.e., food, healthcare, childcare, formula for babies, and housing) are drastically cut, or lost altogether, leaving her no room to live.

This situation leaves these moms stuck at the bottom, incentivized to at stay home and do nothing while receiving more money than if they were employed.

  • The US spends over one trillion dollars per year fighting poverty and still fails!
  • Moms make more money sitting home than they do if they work!
  • #Incentivize – Don’t Penalize!
