Because of people like you and Philly, those below the poverty don't want to upgrade their skill. They don't want to worker harder or improve their lives. Why would they when they have people like advocating that they should stay at their jobs of no skills because we'll just pay you more. Don't upgrade, because we'll keep paying you more. You guys advocate that. Are you sure you aren't causing the issue of welfare cases through your generosity of wanting to re distribute wealth without earning it?
Im telling circumstances only play a role in affecting your outcome if you don't prepare for them. So essentially if you lose your job and can't pick up, its because you weren't prepared and didn't do what had to be done. If you can't afford to put food on your plate because you can't find a job or ran out of money, thats on you for not have a plan in place as a contingency. Its 100% on the person themselves. My wife was let go from her place of work last year. She found a job within a week. How do you explain that? From our perspective, she was able to find a job because she made sure she had a skill set that is in demand. Thats how you do it.
