DUD, working for 8 bucks an hour at a mindless job is not to much insensitive to work. Take the food away crime might still look better then 8 bucks an hour.

People that see no way to get ahead stop trying.

Or just dont take that job if you have skills that would get you more money. You make it sound like everyone makes minimum wage. 8 bucks is better than nothing but some people would rather have nothing unless its free..Why work if someone will pay you and feed you to not work ?What part of that dont you people get. There is no room for the needy when there are so many lazy greedy..

When I was a kid you worked for a lot less to start.I even laid sod and did concrete forms..for less..Yes the jobs Americans supposedly wont do...I have no sympathy for people complaining about having a job..Feel lucky because lots of people want that 8 dollar an hour job..Food stamps are based on your household income. Ten people living in one home making 8 bucks an hour wont be eligible to get food stamps..But the Anchor kid program should be cut off..That would put 6 million a year back in to Americans funds..

My first job as a lifeguard/swimming instructor paid 2.10 an hour. got 2.5 an hour the next summer.

Then again a gallon of gas was .63 cent.
