This Is What Happens When You Go To The DMVSubmitted by zooamerica on Sat, 04/06/2013 - 19:18
It No Longer Pays To Go To Work
This article reminds me of that story about what high school would be like if grades were, "equally distributed," regardless of how hard one studied or not. Why study hard, labor under the lamp with your face buried in a book to get an A, when your score will ultimately be reduced to a C just to make up for the others in your class who don't do their homework and don't care?
To make matters even worse, this article is suggesting that those who don't study and don't work hard are actually better off under our current system...which is why it will eventually Fail.
Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania explained, "the single mom is better off earning a gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn a gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045."
Wayne Emmerich found that the family breadwinner who works only one week a month at minimum wage makes 92% as much as the breadwinner grossing $60,000 a year.
Emmerich’s stats demonstrate that by working only one week a month one can save a lot of money in child care expenses. But topping the list is Medicaid, which is accessible to minimum wage earners and the program has very low deductibles and co-pays.
In short, by working only one week a month at a minimum wage job, a minimum wage earner is able to get total medical coverage for next to nothing courtesy of you and I.
In short, for most industrious Americans, it no longer pays to go to work. This system is catapulting our country towards an economic Armageddon. Welfare pays and pays well, until the government turns off the faucet. Then we will have a revolution inspired by the 146 million Americans who can longer support themselves. We have all speculated on how a revolution will begin, well now you know why the DHS has acquired 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers. They are waiting for the proverbial excrement to hit the fan.

Produce? Work? Why?
They are eliminating the incentive to work. There is little reward for hard work anymore, and it is often punished as anyone who has ever worked overtime knows....most of the extra pay is taxed to death.
Work hard, study hard, become a smart, independent person...may as well be a nail sticking out like a sore thumb waiting for the hammer to fall.
Isn't socialism great? We will all eventually be equal...equally poor, dependent, or dead.
