What ever happened to welfare reform?
Years ago here in Wisconsin then Gov. Tommy Thompson started the new W2 propgram. Designed to help people get off of welware in this country. I just don't what happened to it. I know other states have aboptied similar programs. We are told that there are no jobs and the ones out there don't pay enough to get people off of welfare. Yet just yesterday I watched a news program on illegal immagrants in Colorado. Most working for Gould construction. They are making up-wards of $14.00 an hour. Bring home like $600.00 a week. I bring home like $435.00 a week.They say no americans want these jobs on one hand. Yet we hear daily about poverty in america. So my question is why can't all these welfare people who are able to work not forced in to work these jobs. Law braking immagriants and welfare porple have it made in this country. The sad part is the people who really need the help can't get it because of the color of their skin.When will the true real American be taken care of in this country.

Well... your basic assumption has a flaw. There are a large number of people willing to work and who have applied for jobs where they hire illegals, but the employers seem to prefer to hire the illegals. I have clients who have applied for such jobs only to be turned away. Social workers see this all the time... More

We have "reformed" welfare to the point where it doesnt help many people except young women who have kids. If you are an adult you cannot get any cash assistance unless you have children only food stamps. Most people who apply are turned down for medicaid (I make 500 a month and make too much to get medicaid).
