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

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:

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