Nothing, thank God. I am socioeconomically fine. Yes, I agree with the abovementioned sign. Welfare is to help those who are truly unable & incapable of working due to physical, emotional, mental, and psychological challenges. It is also there to assist those who have fallen on temporary hard times such as unemployment(when there are no savings nor investments) or when one is in bankruptcy or debt. If one is able physically, emotionally, mentally, and psychologically, h/she should work. Welfare was initially created as a temporary rescue but it has been corrupted for some who have created generational welfare dynasties.
I agree, but it is tough when someone gets a layoff from their job, their pay stops but Bill's don't, and welfare is the difference between,electricity or dark,food or hunger,or even gas to go find work.
That is what welfare is for, a temporary respite. I am for welfare to help those who have fallen on difficult times. That could me, that could be you. There for the grace of God goes I.
