Welfare Reform Welfare as seen by conservative America is a hand out to the poor It creates a cycle wherein children of families on welfare continue dependency on the welfare their parents depended on to raise them But is conservative America setting the blame on the right shoulders Are there enough adequate living-wage job opportunities to take care of Americas poverty stricken masses Will the cycle of poverty end with a poor single mother working a job at McDonalds to support her children instead of gaining welfare benefits I answer no to all these question and firmly believe that welfare reform is heading toward a major catastrophe The current large number of people on welfare is not due to the laziness of the poor but to three major factors 1 The top heavy distribution wealth in the U Sof A today 2 The amount of teenage pregnancies and children born into poverty or potential poverty situations 3Schooling systems must change to accommodate the work forces needs These are definately not the only factors affecting welfare but in my mind are the major factors I will also discuss a couple of my ideas for making funds available for families that need it Firstly the distribution of wealth in the US is astonishingly top heavy Considering all assets in 1989 the richest one percent of the population controls 39 percent of Americas total household wealth Whereas in financial wealth alone the top one percent controls 48 percent Also in regards to income The top one percent garners 8-9 percent of total income1 This gap continues to grow between the rich and middle to poor net wealth and income The new American aristocracy pushes down wages for middle and lower class Americans creating more of a need for government help programs such as welfare However new reforms cut benefits and will require a large number of unskilled workers to enter the work force Current trends toward corporate downsizing
