Abstract:

"The majority of the more than one million lone-parent families in Canada live below the poverty line. To evaluate the effectiveness of Canadian policies in helping low-income, lone-parent families, Terrance Hunsley compares the final income of five different types of families in 10 countries, and draws on interviews conducted with lone parents in the same set of countries." "Comparing the final income of different types of families illustrates the effects of social programs on the distribution of income, incentives to employment and training, and child support payments. Surprisingly, policies appear to preclude both full- and part-time employment for most lone mothers, a finding eloquently substantiated by the testimony of lone parents from around the world." "The author recommends an approach to improving both public and private child support, rent subsidies for low-wage workers, support for lone parents during training and education programs, and more complete and accessible information about benefits and programs for lone parents."--Jacket.
