Firms slow to respond Reform pushes more people into job market, where altruism is up against the bottom line of Yonkers, a welfare recipient who watched Clinton's State of the Union address on television. "What actions are these companies going to take?"

None has begun programs. Some said Clinton's call came at a bad time, during an era of corporate downsizing and consolidation. Some blamed a lack of entry-level jobs. Others said they required higher talent and educational levels than most welfare recipients have. Despite President Clinton's call last month for businesses to "give someone on welfare the chance to work, the biggest local companies have done little, and the handftil of smaller companies with programs reach very few people or are just getting started.
