Message Subject Tennessee proposes welfare reform?
Poster Handle Dried Up Hag

Dried up Hag, you are one of the very rare people who NEEDED the assistance as it was designed. Welfare was originally designed & implemented for short-term mediation. To assist people during a "crisis".

When my children were very young, I needed help, too. LOL, minimum wage was somewhere around $1.80/hour and my husband was making $2.00/hour. (This was during the oil embargo & prices of everything sky rocketed.) We received WIC which really helped. Then I switched to SHARE which was a NGO co-op. Felt so relieved being able to "work" and be a contributing member of the co-op.

Nowadays it seems as if many welfare recipients consider it their "work" and their "paycheck". And their children are approaching it the same way.

Wish there really was a way to "break the chains" and "liberate their minds". Maybe tieing long-term recipients families to school productivity is an alternative.

I'm not sure WHAT the answer is.......I once used to work at a food pantry.....a block away from housing projects. Every month, after we got the USDA commodities delivered, people from the projects would be lined up down the street to get their food....

Then one day, a little boy showed up at my door and said that his grandma had gotten a box of cakemix from the pantry the previous day and she had sent him down to ask me if I could find a can of frosting to go with it.

This kid was like 7 or 8 years old....
