Wefare payments...are they fair and do they differ in the USA??
Well Im living in Ireland and and just wanna get peoples ideas about welfare payments. Do you think they are fair, are they available for too long a time and does been available for a long time do more harm than good?
Im on one parent family allowence the last 5 years which is a rate of 337euro per week including rent supplement (dunno what that is in convertion to dollers but it would roughly be the same I think). I get free medical but so does everyone who earns under a certain amount/
Im on one parent family allowence since Im in college getting my degree and hopfully will be off it next year when I get a full time career!!
Here welfare payments are payed out to everyone who applys and the time limit is endless...basiclly you could be on it for life...I dunno if I really agree with someone been on welfare for life but here you can.
What are your opinons on this and is the system simular in America?? If not then what is the welfare system like over there and what kind of payments are available?
