[What Is Workfare?]

According to OED (Simpson and Weiner prepared 1989: 548),

Canzoneri (1968) reported that Mr. Charles Evers prepared election campaign. Mr. Evers invented "workfare" as a program for his campaign.

I pointed out that New York Post (1968) may be most old record about workrare (Kobayashi 2006).

Jamie Peck (2001) cites Below,

"Workfare. Any public welfare program that requires welfare recipients to work( work +welfare = workfare) or to enroll in a formal job-training program."(Dorsey Dictionary of American Government and Politics)

"A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances in which it is used."(Olilver Wendell Holmes, quoted in Rossiter, 1955: 4)
