Next week, everyone working fast food, retail, housekeeping, etc who makes less than $7.25/hr will get a raise. Unless they're some of the ones who get fired. And some of them will get their hours cut to make up for the increase. People who make $7.30, or $8 or $9 will not get a raise, but they are just as likely to be fired or have their hours cut because they have coworkers who are below the new minimum.
Is the cost of the new/increased PA benefits that will have to be extended to these people be more or less than the wage increase? And how many will quit because the increase will put them just over the line to no longer qualify for benefits or reduce their fs enough it won't stretch far enough anymore?
This is not a PA/FS debate - people with jobs use it, deal with it. Only now they'll have to use it more.

lluvmygirlies, who said anything about abusing the system? The OP said some people who work are still able to collect FS/PA. Some are eligible, that's true. She didn't say they abused the system. Your mom is one of those who is working but makes just a little too much to qualify for full benefits. That's a shame, considering her situation.
I'm truly sorry for your mom and hope her hubby finds work soon.
