Scott Walker’s landmark reforms empower people to move from government dependence to true independence through the dignity that comes from work:
Requiring able-bodied, working-age adults to be employed at least 30 hours a week or enroll in job training in order to receive taxpayer assistance.
Requiring everyone receiving public assistance to be screened to pass a drug test.
Offering rehabilitation for those who fail so we can get them healthy and into the workforce.
Eliminating “benefit cliffs” so people can move into better jobs and higher pay.
Treating public assistance more like a trampoline and less like a hammock.
Let's Keep Wisconsin Moving Forward!
