    United States Welfare vs. Europes welfare

    I live in a small fishing town on the river, and I work full time, many of my neighbors seem to have given up, and are on welfare, thus, it bugs the hell out of me when I come home from a hard day, and they are packing for a cruise trip to Aruba! and my other neighbor vacations in their Florida home in the winter, these people are my age, and they laugh becuase I work!!!!!!



    In England or Great Britan, how does your welfare system work and do they have people that check to see that you arent scaming the system?

    I think that in general European welfare systems tend to be more comprehensive than the US one, and they are better funded, but I still don't think that people on social welfare in Britain are able to afford to go on holidays to the algarve or the costa brava unless they are also working and scamming the system.

    wow- welfare sounds totally different there..
    Here they are strict on you.. they want pay stubs and everything. the minute you start making too much it's canceled & for good reason. it's for the people that need help.. people that have small children..

    I am seriously in shock that you told me people on WELFARE are going to aruba and to their vacation homes in FL.. thats nuts!!

    Welfare in america sucks! If you can spit out more than 4 kids, hey you've got a free ride from the state. However if your sick and dying and just get a lowly social security check for income, they'll be extra generous with the food stamps. Something like $11 dollars a month.

    It seems as though the "system" in America, especially California is terrible as it rewards the lazy and ignorant. And it penalizes those who would rather "spit out babies" instead of work. But still, I'd rather work and make more money than sit on my ass and produce unwanted children. And I know that I make more money working than I would on welfare. And I feel better about it and myself. I think that the way the American government treats it's veterans is horrendous.
