Transcript of Welfare

The two sides of welfare
Who can receive welfare?
Welfare laws differ from state to state.
Welfare is commonly provided to individuals who are unemployed, those with illness or disability, the elderly, those with dependent children, and veterans.
How welfare works
Welfare is only issued based on a family's income level. The income for the household must be at or below the poverty level set by the state.

- Temporary assistance for needy families providing cash assistance to American famlies.
- It's a form of temporary welfare.
- Requried to find a job with in 24 months.

Daily Hygiene
Finding a job
Calm yourself
If you are able to make enough to provide for yourself you should be able to help the less fotunate out
When we give money to the poor they go out and spend it on the things they need to survive: paying down their debt, groceries, bills.
This money goes back into the economy much faster than tax cuts do.
Cash Assistance
Cash assistance is given out in small amounts. The amount of cash dispersed depends on a person's income level and family size. The cash is given either on a debit card or direct deposit into a person's bank account. It is dispersed once per month.

Food Stamps
Food stamps are also issued based on family size and income.
Each month the designated amount goes on the card and the family can then use it at the grocery store. The store automatically deducts the amount from the card

If we deny these people welfare what else do they have?
Without welfare they don't have the money to get themselves up and to get a job
Welfare is needed to help people like this
Child Care
Child care is only provided for individuals who need to work but can't afford daycare. Those who receive child care must find a child care provider that will agree to get paid what welfare is offering to pay.
