Good Intentions Gone Wrong, Part 2: The Welfare Cliff
Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ~ “The single mom is better off earnings gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045.” (h/t)
Is it any wonder people have made the economic choice to be more “taker” than “maker”? We’ve incentivized it. Perhaps one step away from the “fiscal cliff” would be to take a similar one back from the “welfare cliff” by reducing the incentives (ie; benefits)? “Tyler Durden” has much more.
