Long Beach, CA (May 30, 2012) -- The truth about the effectiveness of California's Los Angeles welfare work program is revealed in Jahi Kweli's new self-help book, You Me and EBT. Kweli shares his experiences as a career enhancement professional within the southern California program in this book that aims to give empowerment to its readers. Within its pages are stories that contain humor, romance, success, and characters that can only be described as 'diamonds in the rough'.
There is a lot of criticism when it comes to the American welfare system but what is the truth and what is not? Hundreds of thousands of people are recipients of welfare across the nation but the question is whether they should be. Every so often, news agencies publish stories about individuals who are living lavishly and fraudulently on welfare, benefiting at the public taxpayers' expense while others, who are working, struggle to make ends meet. These stories raise the questions as to whether these welfare programs are working, and if recipients of welfare are using them in the way they were designed to be used.
Kweli uses his 19 years of experience as a career enhancement professional to take readers into the relatively unknown world of welfare in his new self-help book, You Me and EBT. The book shows the challenges and barriers that exist for people in the welfare system while also pointing out how many welfare recipients make no effort to find employment despite the many programs designed to help them do so.
The empowerment book spans the years, 1995 through 2010 and goes into great detail about the welfare program in Los Angeles County. Miss Shy, a radio personality on the Long Beach, California radio program, Flyy radio, states that You Me and EBT is an "interesting read" and has "social implications on people living in southern California.
Kweli and his book are being featured on the daily satellite radio show of Mr. Arthur Brooks, CEO and founder of DNBSRECORDS/ Live 365 Records Radio. Brooks says that You Me and EBT will bring further community awareness about welfare work and how it is affecting communities.
