I can’t vouch for its accuracy, but I do recognize bits and pieces of it — such as the fact that those who don’t work get rewarded with free education, while those who do work have to pay through the nose. I also know about all the freebies — phones, utilities, food, etc.
Judging by the super poor people I know of (and I’ve mentioned before my direct connection to someone living in that community), the very poor are aware of many of these things, but are too disorganized to take advantage of all of them. Likewise, their culture of poverty doesn’t encourage them to take advantage of other offerings, such as free college.
One of the things that routinely strikes me about the very poor about whom I hear is that the culture of poverty is a real thing. These are not middle class people who are facing hard times. The chronically poor have a culture that is anti-education, pro-drugs and alcohol, anti strong family bonds, anti-cheap medical insurance (why pay when you can go to the ER and get medical care for free?), and anti-hardship.
This last sounds peculiar, given that these people are often facing a marginal existence that none of us would want. They scrabble for garbage service and dental care and clothing, etc., but these are familiar problems. They are used to this. What they are not used to, and not willing to do, is to struggle to raise themselves above their marginal existence. They’ll stand in line three hours for free food, but won’t work an eight hour day to pay for their food.
Work — and by “work” I mean the actual paying job itself, as well the efforts one has to make to hold that, or any, job — is anathema to many of them. Any hitch in the work day, whether it’s a mean boss, an uncomfortable desk, a too-short coffee break, or a long commute, is sufficient to send them right back to the familiar comfort of dealing with the government bureaucracy for those “free” handouts and benefits.
