Re: Poverty - Canada's National shameFeb 15th, 2009
At first that is what I meant, I'm not talking about all people, but I know several who do just that,
There's some truth to that. My "ex" is from Northern NB and the routine was. Work for 6 months and ask to be laid off (to collect pogey) and be replaced by your brother/sister and then repeat the cycle. She had 5 brothers and sisters and they had the routine down pat.
Not everyone is like that, but the abuses do tend to drain the "pot" from those that actually need the "social safety net"
