Hello I am new to the country and have been told that the government will pay for things for you like rent food and electric bills. I have never heard of such a thing before. I want to know what I have to do to get this welfare? Can I have a job and get it or will I have to quit?

Get a job and work. Welfare is suppose to be for only the ones who truly need it. If you are physically capable of holding down a job then you don't need welfare!!!
pathetic

You seriously think a Mexican can write english that good? I seriously doubt it? Sounds like someone wanting to piss a bunch of people off!

I think there should be a cap on how long you have welfare assistance. These people should be able to live off of it. I also think it should be mandatory to have a job or actually be looking for one to get benefits. There are too many places with help wanted signs up in this town to have so many people living off welfare and complaining about how you can't find a job.
huh
