Poverty, Income Inequality, and Discrimination

I need assistance attempting to solve my study questions.

Study question: In 1987, there seemed to be bipartisan agreement that Aid to Families with Dependent Children should be transformed into a vehicle for education, training, and work. In what sense is work the solution to dependency? Can training and job placement enable long-term welfare recipients to break out of poverty and dependency?
Study Question: According to some economists, Social Security should be voluntary, not mandatory. Present the arguments on each side of this issue in as much detail as you can.
Study Question. People are classified as poor on the basis of their current money income. Should the following items also be taken into account?
(a) The assets of the person or family?
(b) The existence of rich relatives of the person or family.
(c) The person's or family's income over a period of years, not a single year.
