do you think people on welfare should be forced to work for charities or something else after 6...
months of recieving benifits?wouldn't it cause many welfare folks to actually get a job if they had to work for their benifits?
deffinetely, they should do smthing to deserve the money they ar receiving
Dude, it's clear that you have no clue as to what you are talking about, please read my hubs concerning food stamps, and how it is sometimes virtually impossible to keep getting them. . . .without defrauding the fraudulent system.
I'm not sure if it's true in all states but in Ohio you do have to work a certain amount of hours to receive benefits. The focus needs to be on the greed of the world not the small change they call welfare. Don Henley said it best, " A man with a briefcase will steal more money than any man with a gun".
I would say making them work for their benifits right away, charity is a good way to go, or as I suggested in a hub I wrote even something like picking up trash on the side of the road would be good. I think for some they would welcome the ability to give back, and for those who are going on welfare just so they don't have to work would be more inclined to get a job if they knew that part of their welfare benifits meant that they would have to pick up trash or clean bathrooms.
Wesman Todd Shaw. dude it's obvious that you know nothing about me. i'm canadian bud, we don't use food stamps first off. secondly telling someone they have no idea what they are talking about without doing research about the subject really proves how smart you are dude. as for reading your hubs, if your hubs are as arrogantly written as your responses to others questions i think i'll pass dude.
justom, that is how it should be i think. if you want benifits , you should have to work for them. ohio has it right and in canada we need to start doing the same thing.
Certainly. in the UK the welfare system is famous amongst third world countries, so much so that they know every loop hole before they even arrive in Britain, the fact that legally assylum seekers aren't allowed to claim benefits is meaningless. There are so many 'long term unemployed' in the UK that they've been moved off of unemployed lists so as not to show the true numbers on official figures, I think one reason for this is that they're still allowed to vote so no party wants to upset them by making such a horrible suggestion as they work for their money. with the UK making massive cuts in virtually every department because of the state of the economy some real money could be saved by having them do jobs that otherwise people would be hired to do. Jobs would maybe be lost through this but plenty are being lost through the cuts as it is so this would be just like another cut. The difficulty though would be the 'carers'. Those who apparently can't work because they have to care for a family member. Some are genuine of course but how hard do you think it is to get a doctor to certify you've got a bad back. He's not going to leave himself open to be sued if he disputes it and gets it wrong. Noise has been made lately about getting prisoners to work for their keep too, we'll see how far that goes.

I always see all the articles in the news about so many people being unemployed for months and years. They talk about how they try to fill their time mowing the lawn and fixing the house while waiting to get a job.So, if they want to work and got plenty of time, how come they don't try working...

One of the favorite claims by the Right-wing is that once a citizen receives welfare, they are wedded to it for life. Now I know (hope) that is just so much hyperbole but the point they are making is that once welfare is given, it is a long-term affair.Can any of you who believe that PROVE...
