Let's clear up a misconception: not everyone on PA is lazy
Honestly these posts about lazy people on PA is driving me a bit nuts.
Why? Because I know many people on PA who work their asses off and still can't make ends meet.
Right now DH and I are on WIC, food stamps and heat assistance. Why? Because he has cancer and can't work and I lost my job due to state budget cuts. We are both disabled veterans and when we looked at the economy and how things are going we decided that we should go back to school. So we are both full time students in college so that we can make the future better for our family. While we are doing that we need a bit of extra help mainly until DH is finally approved by the VA for disability.
I have a friend who is also on PA. She is currently working 4 jobs (2 seasonal and 2 part time). She works her ass off but still can't make ends meet so she has WIC and food stamps. She also goes to school part time.
I know many hard working people who just can't seem to make ends meet in this economy. They are either working hard on getting their education and they are working hard in multiple jobs or working full time.
You can't judge every situation just by seeing one side of it. Things such for a lot of people in today's world.
