Aside from pride, there is very little - maybe even no reason to get off the government dole and get a job in the majority of states in our country.
According to a new study by the Cato Institute those on welfare are earning more than a minimum wage worker in 35 states. But it gets even better! In several states those on welfare and associated benefits are earning, uh being given more than $20 per hour to sit on their duffs.
Here's an idea. Lets all quit our jobs, head to Hawaii sit on the beach and knock back 60k per year! Yep, some 167 percent above that state's median income.
