The comparison between the average wage and welfare falls short of the greater contrast between welfare and the lower-wage jobs, which are $9 an hour or less in most states. And, some of that $9 is snatched away by the government for taxes, so a person keeps even less than that, while welfare is generally not taxed. And a person on welfare usually has his government income reduced or eliminated if he takes a job, in addition to the fact that he usually must spend money for work clothes and transportation to work and back. So, a person on welfare contemplating taking an entry-level job with minimal skills faces the prospect of less income, taxes, and higher expenses. I know many people who don't even aspire to work--they'd rather have a life of leisure, living off the taxpayers and drinking or smoking dope for enjoyment. And, sadly, this is the example they set for their children.:(

Sounds a bit like here - the UK is dying slowly.

These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!
Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.confused2
