Peter Cove is a nationally-acclaimed advocate for private solutions to welfare dependency, and author of the new book, POOR NO MORE: Rethinking Dependency and the War on Poverty. Peter Cove is the founder of America Works, the first for-profit, welfare-to-work company. He has created more than 1 million jobs for welfare recipients through America Works and other private sector endeavors. In the 1960s, America set out to end poverty. All initiatives on the War Against Poverty have since failed. All except one, the welfare reform in 1996. What made this reform different from all the others? Peter Cover, the author of Rethinking Dependency and the War on Poverty and the founder of America Works shares his ideas on how jobs can fix poverty.
