I believe the correct term for it is "making welfare a way of life ". I hate to say this but our government makes some people this way and so do private sector employers by not providing a living wage . I believe if more ppl had a decent education and the government would not make it so easy to get on welfare then I believe we would not see that many people on it . I once had a conversation with a lady who was in our shop having her car worked on and she was telling me she had 14 kids and that she raised them all by herself on welfare . I almost screamed at her hey lady you did not raise those kids on your own you raised them on my dime . I was at work and probably would have been fired if I had said anything to her .
