Joseph Haggerty, president of the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, is a member of a rare breed: a pragmatic idealist.

The fact that he's also Irish, second-generation Boston no less, makes this all the more surprising. Or maybe not. Along with their yearnings toward the muse, the Irish have a long-standing tradition of service--if the priesthood doesn't appeal, social work will do.

Your Aug. 20 article regarding L.A. County's success in moving people from welfare to work is heartening--on the surface. Too often, hard-working former welfare recipients are moved not only into low-paying jobs but also into the ever-expanding world of the working poor. In the world of the working poor, people such as the busboys who clean our tables cannot always afford to put food before their own families and the people who watch our children during the day cannot afford child care for their own youngsters.
