Seasonal Employment Dynamics and Welfare Use in Agricultural and Rural California Counties

This report, written by Henry Brady, Mary Sprague, Frederic Gey, and Michael Wismeman, examines the seasonality of welfare partipation in agricultural and rural counties in California. The authors argue that the time limits imposed by TANF reduces the degree to which welfare can provide off season income for seasonal workers, who are important to California's agricultural induistry. This report is now part of a book entitled "Rural Dimensions of Welfare Reform," Weber, Duncan, and Whitener, eds. The book is a compilation of papers from a May 2000 research conference sponsored by the Economic Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research and the Rural Policy Research Institute. The book was published by the W.E. Upjohn Institute for employment research in 2002.
