THE WORK ETHIC WE INHERITED GROWING UP HAS FALLEN PREY TO THE ‘WELFARE’ SYSTEM–8jh., b12-1

Welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33

states and the District of Columbia .

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states.

Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590

yearly salary, all for doing nothing.

Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare

recipients receive is higher than having a job:

Hawaii

  1. District of Columbia : $50,820

Massachusetts : $50,540

  1. Connecticut : $44,370
  2. New York : $43,700
  3. New Jersey : $43,450

Rhode iland

Vermont : $42,350

  1. New Hampshire : $39,750
  2. Maryland : $38,160
  3. California : $37,160
  4. Oregon : $34,300
  5. Wyoming : $32,620
  6. Nevada : $29,82
  7. Minnesota : $29,350

As a point of reference the average

Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down

from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession.

Hawaii , DC , and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn

there. Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job.

Time for a drastic change…

America is virtually bankrupt.

Note that

California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we

un-do this type of stupidity? This is crazy!

Salary of retired United States Presidents $180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate….$174,000 FOR LIFE

This is beyond stupid !!!!!!!

Salary of Speaker of the House…$223,500 FOR LIFE!

This is really stupid.

Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE!

Ditto last line.

Average Salary of a teacher …$40,065

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN .. $38,000

Think about this !!!!!

Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for

LIFE.

She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year. PLUS she will

receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader, the fact that she

has become rich while in office notwithstanding.

That’s $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available

to us …. the taxpayers

She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and

Congress that float in and out every year!
