You can sit at home in Alabama and not work and draw $23,310.00 from welfare benefits!!! That is $11.21 per hour for a 40 hour week. In Alabama welfare benefits pay $1.11 more than Obama's minimum wage of $10.10. Why work????
Read this carefully
The Cato Institute is a well known & respected conservative "Think Tank".
They released a study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia. Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states.
According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It's now more profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day's pay.
Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.
Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent "salary" that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:
1. Hawaii : $60,590
2. District of Columbia : $50,820
3. Massachusetts : $50,540
4. Connecticut : $44,370
5. New York : $43,700
6. New Jersey : $43,450
7. Rhode Island : $43,330
8. Vermont : $42,350
9. New Hampshire : $39,750
18.North Dakota: $28,830
20.New Mexico : $27,900
22. South Dakota : $26,610
27.North Carolina : $25,760
28.West Virginia : $24,900
29.Alabama: $23,310 . . . . . equivalent of $11.21 per hour @ 40 hour week per year!
34.South Carolina : $21,910
Now do you think we should reform welfare?
Why not share this info with your registered voter responsible friends!
The November VOTE is not far away!
If numbers from Cato Institute are right. Why work???
No wonder "unemployment" is so high. Obama and the 'Dems' are creating lots of dependent 'Democratic' voters by giving away your tax dollars! What this country needs are jobs!!!!!
