Way to go State of Maine!
I just heard that Maine is revamping their welfare system. In order for people who are ABLE bodied and CAN work to get benefits they are going to need to put a little effort into receiving them. They need to volunteer 20 hours a week and/or take job training classes. There is a little more to it but that is the over all idea. They are trying to get people off they system who are more then capable to work and just choose not to or perhaps lack the training to. Here comes my rant...ready? I am so tired of supporting lazy people. I know there are some legit cases where a person can not work. In those rare cases by all means that is what the system is here for. Imagine how much better those people could live if we cut off the life sucking abusers! I know of several people who are using the system. They can work they choose not to as they don't feel they should have to work for less than Xamount that they made at their last job. So instead they sit home waiting for the golden ring to call with an amazing job offer. Get off your duffs and get a job! Ok...end rant!
