It pays not to work in America | Eastern North Carolina Now

A new study points this out.

A new study by Committee to Unleash Prosperity economists Casey Mulligan, Erwin Antoni and Stephen Moore finds that government payments and free health care benefits can pay more than the annual equivalent of a $100,000 job in three states, and the equivalent of an $80,000 a year job in 13 states.

The national average of unemployment and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) subsidies for a family of four with two parents receiving UI benefits is the equivalent of more than $60,000 a year in cash and benefits. The study authors conclude that these high benefits are a major reason that labor force participation is at or near a record low today and that there are still at least three million fewer Americans working today than before COVID. Adding to the problem, the authors conclude, is that most of the landmark work requirements in the 1996 Welfare Reform Bill have been removed and so workers are slower to get back on the job when they lose a job.

It is nice to see "what we already knew" verified by experts. We are a socialist nation headed toward a communist dictatorship.

If you want to see government change, change the people who are running government. All government, from the dog catcher to the President and the bureaucrats in between.
