What's the problem?

Post by T on Tue Oct 29, 2013 6:19 am

Tanner: "One of our concerns is that the value of welfare benefits has exceeded the value of a low-wage job, which means that in many states, it's a disincentive to work. We think Maine has actually done a pretty good job of avoiding that."

Agreed.  It IS a disincentive to work.  But is the problem with our welfare program(s) or with low wages?  The poor keep getting poorer and rich keep getting richer.  More and more of the middle class is moving to the lower class income bracket, while the top 2% reap all of the financial rewards.  

It's time for a raise!
