Hawaii pays 85k Canadian a year for welfare . Unreal.
Guess the easiest way to get ahead today. Become a useless junkie. Let the Government pay your way. 90k a year

Remember though that most of this 85,000 goes towards overpaid government pencil pushers, and not the actual poor people it's supposed to help.

The homeless scene is a growing industry with great job opportunities for social workers and bureaucrats alike.

Curious..what percentage of the homeless are mentally ill and off their meds? Would the funding be better allocated to mental health services? Should we reduce the strict guidelines of getting a mentally ill patient hospital care from attempting self harm to simply unable to care for themself?
