O'Malley Announces Welfare To Work Numbers

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley says 12,504 people left welfare and found jobs in the year ending Sept. 30.
    
The governor announced Monday that's a record number for the state. He also says more than one-third of the jobs pay $10 an hour or more.
    
O'Malley made the announcement during a visit to Johns Hopkins Hospital System, where a public-private partnership trains welfare recipients for careers.
    
The Maryland Department of Human Resources says since the caseload peaked in December 2010, there are 26 percent fewer work-eligible individuals receiving Temporary Cash Assistance now.
    
The department also says the overall caseload has decreased 8.7 percent since 2011 from 28,828 to 26,309 now.
