Rep. Renacci Q&A at Ways and Means Welfare Work Requirement Hearing
February 28, 2013
Today, U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci (OH-16) attended a hearing in the Ways and Means Committee dealing with the Administration's decision to waive the work requirement associated with receiving certain forms of welfare. The witnesses and Rep. Renacci agree it is important to keep the work requirement in place so that those who are currently unemployed continue to keep their job skills as sharp as possible, something future employers want to see when they are hiring. That is true even for when dealing with the act of applying for jobs.
