Public Supports Work Requirements

BY:

A majority of Americans think those on welfare should be required to work, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 83% of American Adults favor a work requirement as a condition for receiving welfare aid. Just seven percent (7%) oppose such a requirement, while 10% are undecided.

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on July 16-17, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/_ 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Last Thursday, President Obama issued an executive directive circumventing the 1996 welfare reform law. In effect, his order waived the work requirements in the program.
