Many have the tendency to demonize those on any kind of welfare. I submit to you this wrong. There are some poor people who are lazy. The poor are like everyone else. Some of them are wonderful people, and some are not. Despite the previous fact, it shouldn’t matter. A person who isn’t nice still deserves food and other basic needs.
Welfare is not the problem. The problem is lack of work rehabilitation. We need to do more to help the poor find a way to learn skills. Then, they will be able to take jobs that pay enough, so they no longer need assitance.
Many come from poor or broken families and may need life coaches to help understand how to interview for jobs and how to hold on to them. They need training on how to handle work related stress such as a bad boss. No, being poor doesn’t make one stupid, but depending on the family they come from, some things just aren’t common sense.
No one is a queen on welfare. No, instead, finances are so tight some are a candy bar away from over drawing the bank. No one, I’m their right minds, wants to be on welfare, when they could do better being independent.
