Is absolutely doing the most.
I wish I knew this magical place the GOP was talking about where people are just handed piles of free welfare and can just roll around it all day. (/sarcasm)
Because someone needs to let this room that is bursting with people and families who have been waiting for hours for FOOD assistance what is going on.
If everyone is truly “cheating the system” none of the people here got the memo.
it really amazes me how many people on the internet know for a fact that welfare recipients
- are unemployed because they’re lazy
- wear brand-name clothing and drive expensive cars
- are drug/alcohol addicts
it’s like everyone becomes an expert despite probably not actually knowing anyone who has ever been on welfare or being on welfare themselves. amazing!
Its weird when people reuse things because of the whole bohemian trend. I know sustainable living is a thing but it trips me out how in one context, carrying mason jars to class to reuse as a cup is celebrated, while in another context its an example of how people in poverty have to become innovative.
Stuff you would get made fun of for in High School are now the thing everyone does, to the point that people spend EXTRA money just for the bohemian aesthetic.
I just find it all… interesting…
I’m thinking about writing a longer piece about this so I wont get TOO into it. But government assistance is ridiculously difficult to get on.
I hear all this rhetoric about assistance and work requirements and limits on welfare. PLEASE someone show me the massive amounts of people just abusing he hell out of welfare. Because I’m pretty sure if that was the case poverty wouldn’t be such a pervasive and uncontrollable issue, if people can just abuse welfare and be COMPLETELY fine. Because it looks like people in need have to jump through an array of hoops to even get a CALL BACK from the welfare office.
The GOP and its “protestant work ethic” ideology that is completely disconnected from the realities of poverty and what the government is actually providing people.
As the election draws closer its just OPEN SEASON on poor folks.
