I just got approved for welfare, but guess what?

I didn't want the welfare, I wanted to work and make a living. I love work and do so any chance i can. It is so damn hard making a good wage when the law is no more than 108 hours a month. I make 8.25 an hour and love my job. I just moved to this area and do not pay rent, the problem is I live in a high cost state but all the jobs are in another state. I can not get a second job because my schedule comes out on weekends and changes every week. I make less than 200 a week. I work late and go in early but because I can only have up to so many hours a month I can never get ahead. I don't understand why those like me that want to work and do a damn good job can't make more money? Why are they punishing these compaines with the health care stuff, hell if I made more and could work more hours I could afford my own? 

Sorry just my rant I am tired of hearing sorry you worked all the hours you could work this week so you have to take the next three days off.

The point is I am tired of the government tell me when I can and can not work. I am sorry but that is bullshit.

Wtf are you talking about?

You can work as many hours as your job will let you.

I work 60 hours a week most weeks.

8.25 and hour times 108 is a little more but after taxes it is right around 800 and that is high pay where I live which is a joke
