Republican candidate for governor Charlie Baker said he wants to overhaul the state's welfare system.
Baker said he'd invest in job training, offer tax credits to employers who hire welfare recipients, and give childcare vouchers to those trying to move off welfare by finding work.
He would require applicants to look for a job before receiving assistance, and cap the months of school or training that can be used to meet the work requirement.
Baker also says he would create an all-electronic benefits system in his first term.
