Why Should I Work?
Why should I work when I end up getting less of a government grant for school as a result? Why should I work when I could get my rent for free through subsidized housing? I have a friend who decided, a while back, to quit his job so he could focus more on his schooling. As a result, the government takes care of him and his wife through various welfare programs that are available to low income families. Am I gaining more of an economic benefit than my friend by working while going to school? I know I could get better grades if I could stay at home and study more and live off of government programs. Would better grades and less work experience be better then a lot of work experience and lower grades? Would I be abusing government programs if I do what my friend is doing? I personally think I should work and avoid living off of welfare programs as much as possible. I hope that my future employer(s) feel the same.
