Get a second job or study or do something. Not let me sit on my *** only work 20hrs a week so i can get help. It baffles me that people are really ok with this. Most people work 40hrs a week and sacrifice time with their kids to continue and education even if that means online, part  time or at night. In my eyes working 20 hrs a week and not doing anything else is lazy period point blank! I work as a Staffing Coordinator i have people come into for jobs all the time tell me they only want to work part time so they can keep all their benefits and it literally takes so much not tot tell a person their a lazy ****. Like im offering you to work full time and benefits after 90 days but you wanna a be a lazy sob and work part time so that the government can support your *** smh

because what is the point of making the same amount of money for doing double the work is the mindset

. theyd rather take the 20 hours and they going to be making the same amount as if they were working  40 hours . i dont think its about being lazy at all. even lose some of the benefits like health coverage and things like that. 

everyone is in a different situation.

No one said it's ok

We said it's sad if someone worked 40 hours at minimum wage they still couldn't support themselves, hence the minimum wage needing to be higher so it can be a livable wage.

I find it very hard to believe anybody with a kid would choose risking not getting the rent paid and not having food vs the opposite

Maybe you could sleep on benches and figure out a way but not when you have a kid
