Is It Worth It to Work If You Are on Welfare?

Posted on the 21 July 2015 by Calvinthedog

However, I think that there are jobs available for government housing dwellers/ government money recipients. They don’t want to them though, because it would cut their check. However, they can get larger checks from having kids etc.. That’s where all the fuss comes about that Sam is concerned about.

I can tell you that in the middle of the ghetto, there really are literally no jobs period. Nothing, zero, zip, zilch. The jobs that are available are outside of the area, and many ghetto Blacks are so poor that they don’t even have cars. They are forcing all these welfare mothers to work now, and it’s a gigantic clusterfuck because there’s no childcare for their kids. Who’s going to take care of the kids if Mom has to work?

Also many to most of those welfare women have no vehicle. There are often no jobs where they live and the only work is outside the area. As they have no car, they have to take public transportation to job interviews or work, and public transit in the US is awful. It’s a great big gigantic mess and most of them are a lot worse off than when they were on welfare.

Welfare is ~$300/month and you only get it for 5 years. If you have another kid, it might go up to $400/month. The extra money for the new kid doesn’t come close to covering how much it costs to raise a new kid. Any Black woman having more kids to get a bigger welfare check would have to be out of her head.

Jason says that a woman getting a $300/month welfare check does not want to take a job because her check would get cut. That makes no sense. Here minimum wage is $1,800/month. Now if a person got $300/month for a check, why wouldn’t they quit that to take a $1,800/month job? Sure the check goes away, but now you have $1,500 extra a month. The real reason is if she takes that job, she will have to hire child care to take care of that kid and that could be very expensive.

However, a woman might stay on assistance because you get that little bit of money and plus you can stay at home and take care of the kid, so you do not have to worry about child care. And you also get Medicaid if you are that poor.

I assure that in my apartment complex, $1,400-1,600/month take home is barely even enough to survive. You could pay rent and buy food and gas and that’s about it. You could pay most of your bills every month, but most months, you would probably not be able to pay all your bills and would have late bills. And you better pray your car does not break down.

However, she would now need to pay for child care, and she might just lose her Medicaid and Dentacaid. So a lot of people will stay on assistance to keep their child care (themselves) and especially their medical care.

I do not think I have ever met the typical “lazy nig on welfare.” I guess they exist, but I have never met one. The woman upstairs is pretty close. She and her Mom are both pretty ghetto. But even that young woman was enrolled at a private college a while back in a medical assistant program. She got dressed up in her medical uniform every day and went to school. Her Mom really is a stereotypical “ghetto nig;” I hate to say it. She is truly an awful person. But that woman worked as an elementary schoolteacher for many years. Now she’s retired. A lot of these Blacks who seem like “hardcore ghetto nigs” are a lot more productive than you think they are. Most of them seem to work. Their main problem is with values and morals, not work ethic.
