Have a job? An actual job that's not under the table and they take taxes out?

I'm just curious, since so many PA bashers here seem to think everyone on PA is lazy and doesn't work!

I am on PA right now. I'm a single mom to a daughter with special needs. Because of this, I can only work part time. She has a lot of doctors appointments and therapy. So I work 20-25 hours a week outside the home, while she is at school/on days she doesn't have appointments. I myself also have some severe medical conditions. I also have my own business through a direct sales company. I do it to earn more money than just what I make at my part time job. Yes I pay taxes with this job. Its not under the table.

But its still not enough to survive on. I currently get food stamps, and dd and I live in income basedapartments. Dd also has health insurance through the state. I hate that I need help right now, but I'm doing the best I can with my situation. I'm hoping that ill be able to go full time someday. But employers here aren't hiring fulltime anymore because of obamacare.

But anywho, who here gets PA and also works?

See, were not all lazy moochers!

Oh and before you say I shouldn't have had my child, I was with her father for a long time and he turned very avusive when I got pregnant. So I left.

A part time job is most definitely a job! Hence why its called a part time JOB. I know when I'm at work I'm working my butt off and its definitely not a hobby. Lol

Her statement is clearly ridiculous and very ignorant.
