Anyway, I didn't watch but I know from experience that the programs are not set up for success. The reason I won't apply for SSD is because I'd be forced to live way under the poverty line and not be able to work or go to school. I'd rather hustle and be sick and have a halfway decent life than to be stuck for the rest of it.

This is an obvious fake call. She sounds white also but she does speak some truth. A lot of folks on the system work and still barely make it but if they make 5 dollars more than the system allows they will be cut off completely.Childcare alone will kill you if you are not making at least 50k.

Ayyyye Riverside! I use to live there. This sounds so odd though as if someone is calling in the perspective of someone in that position.

I think its fake, too.
I don't think ppl are really satisfied just being lumps on the couch watching TV.  Sure there are plenty of lazy folks, but even then they aren't happy with living barely eating govt cheese.  Nobody "aspires" to be welfare queens.

smh
didnt watch the vid. its too early for the madness

YES, those that want to be someone in life are PUNISHED FOR not wanting to sit home and hug the couch.  Whereas, those that opt for the opposite are rewarded with EVERYTHING FROM HEALTHCARE, LOW COST CAR INSURANCE, FOOD. MILK, VOUCHERS FOR FURNITURE FOR THEIR APARTMENTS, SECURITY DEPOSITS TO MOVE TO NEW APARTMENTS.

THATS AMERICA FOR YOU

^^You think having 7 kids aint work? LOL

Hey, I wish I didn't have to work like a dog to support my family either and stuff was just handed to me, too...but we know life isn't like that unless you are born w/ money or inherited it.

I'm not rich, but neither do I have to use food stamps either to be sure my kids eat.  I don't have a apartment provided by the govt, but I do own my own home.  Don't be ashamed that your values prevent you from just settling for less then what you can potentially acheive.

Yes, there are people who abuse the system and she is over of them that has no intention of ever not allowing the gov't to take care of her. Unfortunately there are many who have her mindset.

I do thii do agree with her that sometimes welfare traps you. When you are trying tho get ahead they pull your assistance leaving though having to return just to make it.




Haven't there been articles about this?  I could have sworn one was posted here.    my mother said when she tried to get off and tried to get a job... they cut her so bad it didn't make sense.   She was living poorer.  She had to play the system to get off.  What she did exactly I don't know.  I do know that she had alot of help from folks at her job and school in regards to paperwork and reported hours working.
Oh chile I re-read the sentence and goodness glad you understood what I meant.  Yes.  It's true newdiva.  I, too, have family a member who returned to the welfare system because making $20 over the income requirement cut them off food stamps, WIC, TANF, child care subsidiary, etc and this is them working a fulltime job 40+ at $9.00 as a administrative assistance.
