Wisconson Works (W-2)
Explanation:
Predlažem da naziv programa ostavite nepromijenjenim, ali da u fusnoti ili zagradama dodate objašnjenje o kakvom se programu radi:

"Wisconsin Works (W-2) is the welfare replacement program for Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) based
on work participation. Under W-2 there is no entitlement to assistance, but a place for everyone who is willing to work to their ability."

"Wisconsin has recently enacted a new welfare reform initiative (Wisconsin Works, or W-2) that requires all families to work. Cash welfare benefits will be phased out. Families will be provided with assistance in finding employment or with public employment opportunities as well as child care and health care benefits. The state executive branch took leadership in winning legislative support for the premise that, in order for W-2 to succeed, child care and health care must be available to all low-income families who need them to work. To this end, Wisconsin will now make child care assistance available to all eligible families who meet the income and asset tests and who need child care subsidies in order to work, regardless of whether or not they are on welfare. Child care expenditures are expected to triple in the next three years. In addition to new state funds, funds from the welfare system will be "redeployed" to the child care system to help pay for this increased demand for subsidized child care"
