Why Nobody is Working

Jerry Rainforth

THIS IS WHY NO ONE IS WORKING!!

The Cato Institute released an updated 2016 study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 American states, and the District of Columbia.

Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour to stay home in 13 states.

According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It's now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day's pay.

Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary 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:39,75 0

10. Maryland : $38,160

11. California : $37,160

12 Oregon : $34,300

13. Wyoming : $32,620

14. Nevada : $29,820

15. Minnesota : $29,350

16. Delaware : $29,220

17. Washington : $28,840

18. North Dakota : $28,830

19. Pennsylvania : $28,670

20. New Mexico : $27,900

21. Montana : $26,930

22. South Dakota : $26,610

23. Kansas: $26,490

24. Michigan : $26,430

25. Alaska : $26,400

26. Ohio : $26,200

27. North Carolina : $25,760

28. West Virginia : $24,900

29. Alabama : $23,310

30. Indiana : $22,900

31. Missouri : $22,800

32. Oklahoma : $22,480

33. Louisiana : $22,250

34 South Carolina : $21,910


Hawaii, DC and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average wage folks earn there.


Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job. Time for a drastic change.. Americans are not stupid.

Note that California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we undo this type of stupidity.

1 At times I've fantasized about what might happen if individual states stopped paying taxes to Washington. Didn't Dingy Harry say taxes were voluntary?

2 Yeah; voluntary. Right. And so is prison, I suppose.

The states are where we must fight all this. They can refuse to play ball, but they have to be ready to lose the Federal money. Since the Civil War nobody wants to buck the Federal government.
