Documents many of the complex issues surrounding the lives of women on social assistance with small children and suggests changes in the way national accounts measure work, particularly as it affects women from difference socioeconomic backgrounds. Makes recommendations to the Saskatchewan Department of Social Services for new internal training programs, supports for access and choice in childcare, transportation, doing job searches, removing clawbacks, developing clear guidelines and policies, and reviewing and revising policy areas that give undue power to case workers. Concludes that with the current welfare reform underway in Saskatchewan, putting a value on the caregiving of children is a great way to envision change.
