One of the many atio dotes Herbet Gans suggest is to provide fulltime enployment rather then providing welfare.

    A Better Way: Four Interviews On The Welfare System Myths surrounding the issue of welfare in our country today are so prevalent that it is difficult for individuals to determine the exact source of their learned misconceptions.

    WELFARE REFORM In the late 1920's and early 1930's, there was a crisis among American families. The crash of the Stock Market in 1929 led into the era, which would be remembered as the Great Depression. The stock market crash left many American people with nothing.

Roosevelt and the introduction of the New Deal, the American people were acquainted with man...
  • Money From The Government Through Welfare
    1,295 words
    Dear Mayor, I am very concerned about Erie City Councils vacillation over whether of not to support the war effort. Erie should not be neutral concerning the war and certainly not opposed to it. City Council needs to set aside its selfish political agenda and actively support the war effort. If Erie were to reverse it's anti-war resolution it would be treasonous. Young men and women from our city and around the country are risking their lives for our freedom and security. We cannot let this war ...

  • Family On Welfare Income
    1,546 words

Some of these articles identify the people on welfare with names that seem foreign, a single parent with numerous children, or a person with a disability. As I read these articles I remember comments made by some family members and friends about how we are "paying for these people' and they should "just get a job like everyone else". There is a lot of anger and feelings of disgust for people on welfare that I feel comes from a...
