I agree. However, this leads to the question of how many of our welfare(1) recipients are actually able to work? Being able doesn’t just mean being able-bodied, but having the skills and work ethics to be at least <minimum wage>$/hr useful. It also means having the experience and track record to convince a potential employer that you are worth hiring.
Do we have enough low skilled jobs for the people who are on welfare? What about those with a prison history – how many low skill and low trust jobs are there for them? This meme gives the impression that most welfare recipients are able to work, but that is doubtful.
(1) In the most expanded meaning of the term, any economic benefit we give people for being poor.
