What do you feel about Welfare?

*Wikipedia*
"'Welfare or Welfare Work consists of actions or procedures — especially on the part of governments and institutions — striving to promote the basic well-being of individuals in need. These efforts usually strive to improve the financial situation of people in need but may also strive to improve their employment chances and many other aspects of their lives including sometimes their mental health. P In many countries, most such aid is provided by family members, relatives, and the local community and is only theoretically available from government sources."

My Opinion:

Welfare is necessary in some instances however when people (especially the un-educated kind) decide it's OK to have another child to get more welfare or to use welfare checks to buy drugs that is where I draw the line. If we are going to have welfare the people on the receiving end better be finding a f'n job, and we should make drug tests mandated for every recipient, because if you have enough money to get and use drugs you don't need welfare anymore.

Please Feel Free to Respond

Thank You for your time.

    It is necessary. But waay over used. I agree with the drug testing. And it shouldn't be an endless source of money. There should be a time limit and then get off your ass and get a job.

    Welfare is for people who are trying. It is meant to help someone out in a rough patch. Not to be a lifelong crutch. People who do not care enough or don't have enough drive to get a job can starve for all I care.

    I agree with what many people have said, if you need it, such as incapacity benefits you should get it, but it should be tested. Many people claim they can't work because there's nothing out there, so just claim job seekers instead, but why not get them to earn their benefits by doing jobs to improve the community environment, like getting them to paint the fence which needs doing, or picking up the litter etc. Stuff like that will improve their job prospects as it shows they are willing to work, rather then claim 'they were looking' to earn money. And it also means that the jobs which the council overpays for will get done by people working to earn benefits such as job seekers.


    This is the English system by the way, before anyone gets confused.
