(Michigan) Gov. Rick Snyder on Tuesday signed into law a stricter, four-year lifetime limit on cash welfare benefits, prompting advocates for the poor to warn that tens of thousands of residents will find themselves without cash assistance on Oct. 1.How are these people going to find jobs in the next 3 weeks? Many of them have none of the skills necessary to survive a work-and-pay-your-bills world. The factory jobs are gone, illegals perform much of the back-breaking work that is required to keep our country moving and government jobs are evaporating as the tax base shrinks. There's nothing left for someone with no knowledge of even basic job skills. Thanks to the welfare state, the world has passed these people by.
The simple answer is, "Kick the illegals out and make the unemployed bums pick up the trash/debeak the chickens/slaughter the steers." But have you seen what a lifetime of welfare does to people? Many (most?) of them are not physically capable of doing these jobs. You are welcome to accuse me of generalizing, but I don't think I am.
I don't like the welfare state, but kicking people out of the system with just 3 weeks notice is cruel and will lead to very bad events.
