There is a time in life when people may need welfare. Welfare should be much more conservative. You should be given a card that has all your money on it. Then you use that card to buy things then the government can see what you buy. If you don't hunt for a job or rarely hunt for a job you wil eventually lose your welfare priviliges. Also you should be required to show I.D and a social security number. Basically welfare should be monitired more so the government can know how you're spending that money.

Who the hell are you (or anyone else) to determine what a "living wage" is? If you want to boil it down, you could argue that minimum wage is a living wage if you eat extremely cheap and share a place with other people/family(ies).Originally Posted by catawba
I'm rather sick and tired of people who think that mule work entitles them to this, that, and everything else. If you're not making a market wage, don't blame the market. The blame lies back at the accuser.
