After reading chapter 4 'The delivery of Social Welfare Services', I came to the conclusion that the federal Government should provide Social Services. The Federal government should also come up with a brand new, and improved system for determining the eligibility for the allotment of benefits.
I know of too many people that have abused public assistance for many years. They have been able to take advantage of the housing, food-stamps food stamps programs. They also manipulate the system to receive disability/ SSI. Living on assistance has become a way of life for them. Many people of communities that live this way become comfortable and lack the desire to get off of assistance. Information on how to cheat the system, receive and live on assistance is pass down from generation to generation. Many people refuse to work because they will lose their benefits.
I feel that the Federal Government should re-examine whose worthy for benefits. The people that qualify assistance that are able to work should automatically have to attend at college or trade school to obtain qualifications for better employment. I know I’m asking for too much but it would be nice for government to create a computer program that transparently show the welfare recipients’ achievements and progress. This would assure that everyone is working to the best of their ability to minimize the benefits received.
