Public Radio Interviews Social Work Professor on Welfare

A Maine Public Broadcasting Network radio report on new welfare restrictions included remarks from Sandra Butler, a UMaine social work professor. Butler said there is no evidence that a significant amount of welfare money is being spent on products and services such as visits to nail salons and tattoo parlors, trips on cruise ships and the hiring of psychics, although they are legal purchases in Maine for someone with welfare benefits.
