The purpose of this study was to present an analysis of the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program, which is a federally funded program designed to provide temporary cash aid, employment, and other services to needy families. The study described the provisions of the policy, which include sanctions, time-limits, and work requirements. The study examined the detrimental effects of the provisions on needy families, as well as the unintended consequences of the policy. David Gil's social policy analysis framework was used to analyze this policy. The analysis was conducted using primary and secondary data source, such as peer reviewed journal articles and state records. The analysis examined the issues dealt with by the policy, policy objectives, implications for the policy, and interaction effects between the policy and forces surrounding its implementation. The study found that public opinion, economic conditions, inequality, and discrimination play a role in the well-being of welfare recipients.
