Linda talks with Pamela Holcomb, a senior associate at the Urban Institute, a group which monitors welfare and health policy reforms. They discuss the issue of job retention for employees who have been hired off the nation's welfare rolls. Companies with training and counseling programs, who help employees with issues concerning child care and transportation tend to have high job-retention rates...but those that don't have a high turnover rate.
