LOL, OP IS A FUCKING TOOL.

The link the op gave has nothing to do with the title.

Also, the fake email has been proven to be that. FAKE.

$25.00 an hour ? average ??
according to who ? a top carpenter in new england was good for that in 2007. now many of those same carpenters are working for $15.00 hr.
i'm sure many more industrial workers have been affected. so where does this average come from ? in southern states those same top carpenters are at $12-15.00 an hour to begin with.
So that makes no sense

After reading the article..I believe the $25 an hour was the average household income for a family...meaning 2 wage earners.

Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.

To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25.00 an hour.

knowing this why is anyone surprised that president santa claus was re-elected?? romney promised to put people to work and provide jobs? pfft....why would anyone want a job?

Basically every owner of a company is on welfare.
They expect other to do the work while they take in the cash.
If you have a boss that dont work , yet enjoy the benefits of other's hard labor , then yes he is a welfare junkie.

No difference between them and a poor junkie taking in from the state. They are all a drain on the worker.

Re: These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed!
I live in Kentucky. A state on that list. And I can tell you this much about how living here has changed in 20 years.

20 years ago family and a good work ethic as well as a strong community was the norm. There was a few on the "draw" back then and the community was all active to help these families pull out of this spiral and get ahead. Tobacco was going out of favor and the gov. paid people to stop growing, stop hiring their neighbors, stop everything. You get a check now. For nothing.

Today, if you are a working person like me and my family, you try to find a community to live in where everyone is working. Otherwise you will be riddled with crime, theft, and drugs. Pestilence is the only word for it. And even the drugs have changed. The big desirable drugs are the pharma heroin equidistant drugs. Gone are the days of the occasional pot head. You can't sell pot now. Nobody wants it. They will fail their drug test and stop getting the pharma heroin drugs if they fool with (harmless) pot.

I couldn't have planned this controlled destruction of community and family better if I was a Nazi mastermind.

Most everyone doesn't trust anyone else now. Community is devastated. There isn't any sense of it at all now. Even families are divided and don't trust each other now. Things are bad.

You take away peoples means of earning an honest living, and what do you expect to happen? In this case, people where forced to stop providing and even paid-off to keep it that way. It doesn't take a brilliant mind to put 2 and 2 together and see this was a planned attack to dismantle our communities and eventually the whole country. If not, then it is the biggest f up in the modern history of nation management. But I digress.

This is obviously of the best laid plans......

I live in Hawaii. A big part of this is because the Hawaii people had their land taken and money introduced.

As people from all over the world buy property it drives up housing prices over here. Land is expensive because they are islands.

it gets to the point where the average person who lives here cannot afford to because of all the mega rich from all over the world who buy up houses.

employees don't pay for their unemployment. their employer does that. so nothing is taken out of your check. that is why self-employed people have to buy unemployment insurance if they want to be covered if they lose their business. and it is very expensive.

excuse me, but the report came from the government, i didn't make it up and pull out of thin air.

i am inclined to believe that people on benefits live quite well because every year the number who depend on the taxpayer for a living grows. if it was so awful that number would shrink.
 Quoting: davvi



TANF goes up to 900 for a family of four, tops. Food stamps (also family of 4) maxes out at 500 per month. You'd have to be very careful when living on that.

single person will get a max of 500 out of both programs per month. There's no way you can compare these stats to a full time (or part time) job making 15-25 per hour.
