The Uncontrollel Model Of Social Welfare

Decent Essays
I believe that social welfare is needed to sustain the health and safety of members in society. In our society, there is often a plethora of individuals who require assistance from the government in order to help with the obstacles that they are facing. My views on this subject matter is consistent with the institutional model rather than the residual model. The problem with the residual model is that it doesn’t take into account uncontrollable forces that may affect an individual’s or family’s living situation as well as employment. For example, the textbook states that “it’s people’s own fault if they require outside help”. (1-3a) This philosophy fails to address uncontrollable factors such as an economic recession or a death in the family.
