This is why we are becoming a Food Stamp Nation
Let me give you a real life example.

I live in Texas and currently working in California.

Gross Income 100% (based on $25/hour or $1000/Week (make math easy)

Payroll Tax: 30% ($300)
California Tax 9.5% ($95)
Child Support: 16% ($160)
Health Insurance: 14% (140)


Net Income: 30.5% ($305)


Now when I was on unemployment(in Texas):

Gross Income 100% (Lets say $400/week)

Tax (Optional) 10% ($40)
Child Support 16% ($64)

Net Income: 74% ($296)

Yea no health care but there are ways of getting free health care.

So the question is....

Why the HELL am I in CALIFORNIA working for an extra $9/week when I could be sitting on my ass in TEXAS! I am really, for private insurance! Hell if I get food stamps I make up that $9 very quickly.



Note: Numbers are random, percentages are actual.
