When I was out of work in the 90's, for a short time we were on public assistance. The short length of time we were on it showed us it's pitfalls. It seemed to us that the more you attempted to better yourself and become self-supporting, the more you were punished. When I got a temp job, working only 1 or 2 days a week, with 4 kids, they would call me in as if I were a criminal.

Then the next month you would get a notice to repay in cash, for the amount of food stamps you were overpaid. Hardly an incentive to work your way off of welfare. I can see why others would learn real quick how to work the system.
