Despite thousands of open jobs, L.A. increases welfare to non-workers

Specifically, rather than expect poor people to accept a job given the massive number now available, L.A. will be handing out an additional $1,000 a month to 3,000 low-income families.

Now, let’s do the math. Let’s say the family has four children and are low-income so they pay no tax. Jusr three months ago, they started getting $1200 a month for government child support payments. Now they are getting another $1000 a month, and all is tax free (and requires no commuting expenses). That means the $2,200 increase in their monthly income is equivalent of earning $2500 a month. And just like that, they are given an ADDITIONAL welfare payment of $30,000 a year.

Now let’s consider all the other freebies this family has gotten. They are getting several hundred in food stamps - another $10,000 a year. Their kids get free breakfasts and lunches, for another $5,000 a year. They are getting the rent subsidized, equivalent to another $10,000 a year. They also get free health insurance, for another $12:000 a year.

That is the equivalent of almost $70,000 a year in welfare benefits - equivalent to the average income of a responsible family that works for a living!

And THIS is the goal of the socialist Marxists - bring the lower-income lifestyle up to that equal to the middle class (who works) so that eventually nobody will want to work. The leftist goal is of a government-dependent citizenry that contributes nothing to the society. Recipe for failure.

There must be an election to buy or a stupid policy to distract attention from. Logic definitely isn't a part of this dumb decision.

Getting votes from lazy, dumb, ambitionless, people with no desire to do anything is really easy. Just buy their votes.

Just give people money so they don't have to do any work and they will sit on their ass and take it and always vote for someone who doesn't make them be responsible for anything.

It's like the kid who lives at home till he is 38 and doesn't do anything except play video games and sleeps because their parents pay for everything and don't make them do shit. Unless the parents do something they will live there their whole lives.

Wonder what the Cali tax payers thinks of that?? I have no sympathy for them. They voted in idiots to run thing in Cali and they got what they voted for.
