I don't have the numbers but know that many of those who are on PA are also working.
They are not all lifers or generational. I doubt those are even the majority.

LoL...and because I feel the need to point this out EVERY time this comes up...... No one begrudges those in NEED. No one begrudges those who are trying. But if even one person is abusing THAT person is a crappy person. I just think that there could be more done to clean up loop holes for those that ABUSE the system.
Oh, and there is DEFINANTLY more than 1 person abusing the system, LOL

I get your point but there are those who do begrudge anyone on welfare.
I know there are those who abuse it but too many people act like everyone is.

Yeah, I actually worked with a few people like that. In the hospital I worked at, the environmental services people got paid very poorly (which was pretty sad considering the stuff they had to clean up) and a few were on FS and stuff. They had to support their families on their tiny salary. FS and other PA helped them so that they wouldn't have to choose whether to pay rent or buy food to feed the kids. I wish more people understood that.
