Description: Understanding the motivations, hiring practices, and work place policies of employers—the demand side of the labor market—can provide considerable information to policy makers interested in promoting work and advancement among welfare recipients and other less-skilled workers. This project will add to our knowledge in this area by surveying employers in the TANF/low-wage labor market. We will survey a national sample of employers, focusing on industry sectors with the most jobs in the low-wage labor market, the employers most relevant for the majority of current and recent TANF recipients. The survey will gather information from employers on their attitudes, practices, and policies toward TANF recipient and other low-skill hires, including information on worker advancement, the use of work force intermediaries in hiring, and the role that child care plays in worker retention. The survey will allow for comparisons of employers in urban-core areas, suburbs, and exurbs/ rural areas. It will also measure employment outcomes for TANF recipients and other low-skilled workers, allowing us to draw connections between employer practices and employee outcomes. In short, this national survey of employers in the lowwage labor market can provide key information on what employer practices and policies are and how they are associated with workplace success for welfare recipients and other less-skilled workers.

    Title: TANF Labor Market Survey.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: Understanding the motivations, hiring practices, and 
work place policies of employers--the demand side of the labor market--
can provide considerable information to policy makers interested in 
promoting work and advancement among welfare recipients and other less-
skilled workers. This project will add to our knowledge in this area by 
surveying employers in the TANF/low-wage labor market. We will survey a 
national sample of employers, focusing on industry sectors with the 
most jobs in the low-wage labor market, the employers most relevant for 
the majority of current and recent TANF recipients. The survey will 
gather information from employers on their attitudes, practices, and 
policies toward TANF recipient and other low-skill hires, including 
information on worker advancement, the use of work force intermediaries 
in hiring, and the role that child care plays in worker retention. The 
survey will allow for comparisons of employers in urban-core areas, 
suburbs, and exurbs/rural areas. It will also measure employment 
outcomes for TANF recipients and other low-skilled workers, allowing us 
to draw connections between employer practices and employee outcomes. 
In short, this national survey of employers in the low-wage labor 
market can provide key information on what employer practices and 
policies are and how they are associated with workplace success for 
welfare recipients and other less-skilled workers.
    Respondents: A nationally representative sample of business
