Do you know of anyone who collects welfare/unemployment that really isn't trying to help themselves by looking for work?
If I did I would distance myself From them as they are dishonest and not worthy of my friendship or being considered honorable people.
Yes, but the majority ARE trying, of the people I personally know.
Also know some under-employed w/effed up priorities that *could* make different decisions that would take them off food stamps, etc. No respect for either group when those are long time/lifestyle choices. Temp, to get thru hard times? Fine.
Not many people are so open about being on welfare. The people that I KNOW are either in school, in a job, or looking for a job. ACTUALLY, I know one that says they're looking for a job, but they lost unemployment when they turned one down.
Is there a way to report these types of people.
Wouldn't be necessary if required to document need consistently & regularly. Too many receiving handouts fraudulently & no one checks. Knew one that tried to get OFF food stamps cuz they finally got work again. Treated like moron for not taking free$
I guess my answer should technically be yes - I know lots of welfare recipients who are in college gaining skills
Yes and it disgusts me to no end. That money should be going towards people who actually NEED it!!
Trying very hard not to be judgmental of our new next door neighbor. She did get to see her son one day a week now that looks like that's over. She sits on her woo hoo and smokes all day. We never had things stolen till she moved next door.
A ton!!! My line of work may give me an unfair insight to the truth though.
What is your job?
My closest friend works for senior and disabled services. She comes over here and we go for a walk so she can destress.
