Last week we talked about different ways to promote work in safety net programs: incentives or carrots, like the Earned Income Tax Credit and disincentives or sticks like work requirements. Policy makers have tried out work requirements in a number of programs, thinking that they might lead to reduced poverty and reduced government spending.

How did that go? Answering that question might inform our current policy arguments, like work requirements for Medicaid. Let’s delve into the research. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.
