In some states, you have to make far more than the minimum wage before it pays not to be on welfare. In fact, there are 12 different states where you actually have to make more than $15 an hour before you start doing better than welfare recipients...

Nationwide, our study found that the wage-equivalent value of benefits for a mother and two children ranged from a high of $60,590 in Hawaii to a low of $11,150 in Idaho. In 33 states and the District of Columbia, welfare pays more than an $8-an-hour job. In 12 states and DC, the welfare package is more generous than a $15-an-hour job.

My son's girlfriend gets like $1,500 a month mother's allowance and if she worked a minimum wage job she'd only bring home $1195.00. Now I know why she doesn't want to find a job.

I'll attempt to explain this without my head exploding...

And without my dwindling faith in work being completely shattered...

Theres a thirty something woman living down the street from me...

Shes single (of course) and has three kids from three different men and every month she receives three different child support checks and hundreds of dollars in food stamps and section eight rent assistance and free full coverage health insurance...

What the f##k imo shes a menace and a shes a parasitic whore and shes a horrible role model for young impressionable girls and she should be forcibly sterilized...

And shes certainly not alone...

Oh yeah I almost f###en forgot to mention...

She drives around in a 2008 Cadillac SUV and never has to worry or think about dragging herself out of bed every f###en morning and face the rush hour hell of trying to get to a thankless underpaying job on time...

Even though this is a so called welfare society, the benefits are nothing close to that. Child benefit for instance is the same for everyone regardless of income and everybody gets it without applying. It's around €110/month for the first kid, then a little less for rest up till the kids are 17. Nothing to make a career out of. damned.gif

iagree.gif I don't know of anyone here driving a Caddy who's on welfare. It's barely enough to keep food in your mouth.

Last night I had to pay $6.54 for a small bag of apples. Welfare recipients are able to get a giant food and vegetable box through a co-op for $8.00 per month. 13.gif

I hope like hell he doesn't learn the hard way!

Of course there are mitigating circumstances, having to pay day care is a substantial part of working if you have little kids. If a single Mom works a full time min wage job, half her net income goes to daycare for just one child, so it may be a matter of survival she not work. If min wage is all she can get.

Well, he's moving home in a few weeks and she's moving into her father's already crowded small house with baby and kitten. This change will give her the opportunity to live rent free, so if she is seriously considering a career as an Early Childhood Educator, now's her chance. I just hope she's not pregnant from my son. He has a long way before he's earning a decent wage and has a lot of time to put in and more training and education to do.
