Social welfare and its effects on society
Social welfare and the growing culture of long term social welfare is damaging today’s society and future generations. When I was younger my parents used to work 14 to 16 hour days to get their business up and running hence I have never had a challenge in working 16 hours a day. This is the theory of nature verses environment. In modern western societies people by nature want to achieve the best but the environment they are living in will have a dramatic impact on this. Tackling unemployment and getting people off social welfare will not only ease the suffering of people today but will also improve the environment their children are growing up in.
Social Welfare needs reform
With the western world in turmoil and most countries having to make massive cuts in their expenditure,governments are ignoring the unemployment and social welfare problem. Failure to take immediate action to get people off social welfare and back to work will do long term and irreversible damage to society and future generations. There is a shortage of jobs out there but there is also a lot of work that needs to be done. Urgent action needs to be taken to work out a system that people on social welfare can rejoin the working population. This should the governments main focus not just cuts.
Social Welfare and starting a business
