Maine Forces People To Work For Welfare, GUESS What Happens To Unemployment

Maine is so mean to the poor. Heartless.  The cause of undo woe and the Governor Paul LePage is the harbinger of calamity for those who need welfare.  He has made the welfare eligibility requirements so tough that the Liberals must believe he is the embodiment of evil.

Maine’s Republican Gov. Paul LePage caught on to this scam and cared enough about the taxpayers in his state to do something about it. He made some serious changes to welfare eligibility, requiring single adults ages 18-24 to work at least 20 hours a week, volunteer 1 hour a day or attend classes to keep their benefits beyond three months. Plus, if they have more than $5,000 in assets, they are removed from the welfare rolls.

Yet, these welfare recipients are not going hungry or living out of cars, but rather, gainfully employed!  They now have a reason for pride in their self reliance, demonstrating to their children how to live life well, as a productive working citizen and not getting by on the dole.

Not only did welfare enrollment drop to a six year low from 255,663 to 199,157, but unemployment dropped as well.  Maine’s unemployment rate in August 2015 was at 4.5 percent, a full 1 percent lower than it was in December 2014, just after LePage won re-election as governor. It’s amazing what can happen when you make people get jobs and take care of themselves.

Well done Maine!
