We don't "have to" provide welfare money as a dependent variable on what private businesses do or pay.What is it with you and bad analogies??? Low skill jobs now have a minimum wage, in my area it would take about a buck more to make that a living wage. If you don't need unskilled labor for a full time job, you don't have to hire him. If you need unskilled labor, pay him a buck an hour more in wages so the rest of us don't have pay taxes to subsidize your business.
No, just any college level economics course. There are consequences to all the things you blindly assume are great ideas. If you artificially pump wages, it will play out in the market in ways you don't seem to be anticipating.What would you recommend, "How to **** the Poor 101?"
ANYWAY, the topic of this thread is what to do about welfare fraud and abuse. Let's assume the people really abusing welfare or getting it fraudulently don't have/can't get any job. Minimum wage hikes won't help them, nor will drug testing rich people. Those have been your main ideas for addressing this so far.
