Independent Institute Sr. Vice President Mary Theroux was interviewed on KSRO radio in Santa Rosa, California about the state's repeal of the so-called maximum family grant policy which prohibits people from receiving increased welfare income if they have more children while receiving public assistance. Theroux argues that the cycle of poverty is reinforced due to limiting entrepreneurship and by creating barriers to job training for low-income Californians. Instead of the state throwing money at the problem, a culture shift is needed to help welfare recipients make better decisions which include business and job opportunities.
