In Wisconsin, it is REQUIRED that you are in work related activities, looking for work or under 12 weeks post partum. Otherwise, if you don't cooperate, you don't receive any cash assistance. You are placed according to work experience, educational test scores, etc. If you score too low for working or don't have a diploma or GED, you are placed in classes to accomplish that. Others are placed in volunteer positions to gain work experience, while others are placed in job search groups and look for jobs 40 hours a week.
