A 23 year old ...3 kids....aged 1-3-4....husband deserts her.....she works 40 a week...minimum wage.....$262 gross weekly pay....childcare $80 weekly for each child.....plus gas and doctors because kids get sick more when in child care settings...do the math...the government requires her to work at least 20 hours weekly in order to keep her $300 a month K-Tap check....people cannot get a welfare check unless they are single parents who do not receive child support.....K-tap recipients must sign that the state gets to keep whatever child support they are able to recover form the noncustodial parent.I have very little respect for people who are committing fraud so they can draw some sort of government or state help.
While i'm on my soap box.
I disagree with people who keep having kids because they know they can rely on programs like WIC, etc.
Accidents do happen: accidental pregnance, loss of job, etc. But, come on don't keep having the kids and expecting the government to pay for them.
I also feel that for someone to be able to pick up an unemployment check that person shall have to pass a drug test each time. This goes for disability checks as well.
I'm sure you can tell that i didn't vote for Husein Obama!
Murray has jobs. It's just that most of the jobs require you to work! If you are older and can't work like a 20 year old then I agree good jobs are harded to come by. There is little excuse for a young man or woman for that matter to have to be living off the government.
Now ask who will watch the children for a Mom to work at any other time than the daytime hours M-F ....most minimum wage jobs require nights and weekends....You might want to research before you spout off.....
