The state's plan to give free child care to welfare recipients who get jobs would create an incentive for people to remain on public assistance.
That according to critics of the proposal.
The state Department of Social Services has proposed the free child care for welfare recipients as part of its plan for spending a federal block grant.
Non-welfare families earning the same income would have to pay a small portion of their child-care bills.
But several social workers and child-care professionals have said subsidies should be the same for welfare recipients and the working poor.
