Document Summary

Welfare system based on a hierarchy of deservedness creates hardships for mothers who have to prove they deserve welfare. These struggles began after the introduction of oma in 1920 (ontario mothers allowance) Welfare policy (oma) is now called family benefits act (fba)- initially started to support poor widows. Fba expanded to support deserted, divorced, unwed, cohabitating mothers, mothers with incapacitated husbands and single fathers. Ontario gov"t has begun cutting back welfare programs and increase the investigations of mothers (in order to see if they are worthy for welfare) July 1993- single mothers with children over age 12 are pressured to find work. Despite the welfare policy expanding and liberalizing over the past 73 years, poor single mothers must still submit to intrusive" investigations and prove their worthiness. Oma was the base of all welfare policies. Moral investigation of welfare recipients was not thoroughly investigated by welfare scholars.
