Note The way Americans live and work has changed significantly since the creation of the Social Security Administration in 1935, but U.S. social welfare policy has failed to keep up with these changes. Old Assumptions, New Realities focuses on policy solutions for today's workers, particularly low-skilled workers and low-income families.--[book jacket]
