Making Sense of Cents

Instead of creating a social welfare system that puts our taxes into pockets with holes in them, why not contribute to the working poor? 

By supplying a worker with a subsidy sufficient to support his/her family unit, as it is, at the end of the Census, you would be empowering them to live with dignity, and voluntarily uplift their community.  Then, perhaps, the working poor would take pride in their work, and be more productive.

Companies who cannot afford to pay high wages, could employ more workers, and boost their production levels.

Surely happy families, makes for happy communities, happy businesses and a happier economy.  There would be less downtime due to sickness, striking, depression, etc.

What do you think about that?  Does this make sense of cents?

Penny's First Blog

I would like to reach the world with a dream.

My dream is a world where 'Robin Hoods' are redundant and the working are not poor; a world where rich and poor live in peace, without fear. 

In my fantasy, the lazy will not be blessed, the diligent will have sufficient to support a family, and suffering will apply only to those guilty of robbing their social conscience.

To change the world, we have to change the way we do things.  Charity is barren in an economy of greed.  Sadly some, who beg or steal their bread, are richer than those who beg for work.  Aspirations outgrow pockets and social responsibilities.

In my world, godly principles prevail; those capable of work, earn their wage and, where there is lack, those capable of giving willingly supply the difference.  The lion will lie down with the lamb and all will be well in the land.
