States with the Most Americans on Disability

1. West Virginia
2. Arkansas
3. Alabama
4. Kentucky
5. Mississippi
6. Maine
7. Tennessee
8. South Carolina
9. Missouri
10. Michigan

West Virginia
> Pct. of working age population with benefits: 9.0%
> Pct. with recurring neck and back pain: 39.0%(the highest)
> 2011 labor force participation rate: 54.1%(the lowest)
> 2011 unemployment rate: 7.8%(23rd lowest)

No state had a higher percentage of working age people receiving SSDI benefits than West Virginia. In addition, the benefits received from by the federal government were more generous compared to most states. The average monthly benefit of more than $1,140 in 2011 was the 10th highest of all states. Almost 21% of recipients received monthly benefits of at least $1,600, a higher percentage than all but three states. Like most states on this list, West Virginia is among the less-educated states in the country. Just 18.5% of the adult population had a bachelorís degree, the lowest percentage of all states. Also, few residents in the state had jobs. Just 54.1% of residents were considered part of the labor force in 2011, by far the lowest percentage of any state in the nation.

Yes and they are so proud of their unhealthy lifestyles and refuse to change, which is how they get on disability. It is something they strive for. They smoke, do drugs, refuse to exercise, eat a high fat and high calorie diet, abuse one another, have sex with children, encourage their children to do poorly in school etc. etc. WV will always be at the bottom of the barrel. Always has been, always will be.

Why does this matter? I love WV and I really don't care what everyone else around here is doing or not doing. Ignore the system suckers, obese, and drug addicts if you don't like them. It's not that difficult to do.

Your statement is 100% true because these people choose to make a career out of getting a check. I use to be a social worker and I had a client tell her 16 year old daughter, that she had 2 years to get pregnant and have a baby, so she could get her own welfare check. Mama wasn't telling her daughter to graduate high school & go to college, or learn a trade, but no get knocked up & get a check.

This is why the drug use problem of pills and meth, has actually been a good thing. All of the druggies & junkies need to OD and die, resulting in less bottom feeders sucking up WV tax dollars. Most are on checks, food stamps, SSI, Medicaid, are of no use anyway, so encourage them to take 5 Opana or 10 Tylox at one time, so we can be rid of them. Good to see Heroin making a come back because junkies OD and die on that stuff faster than Raid kills a cockroach.

FYI I damn sure don't want or need your pity and neither do my kids, my dad told me as his dad told him, be proud of the man you are and don't worry about what people think or say about you because it don't matter if you are happy, and only way I could get any happier is if they gave me a raise, so don't be sorry for me because I'm doin just fine!!
