Welfare Pays More Than Work In Many States

In case you missed the widespread news coverage, our latest CTUP paper finds that government payments and free health care benefits can pay more than the annual equivalent of a $100,000 job in three states, and the equivalent of an $80,000 a year job in 13 states.

The national average of unemployment Obamacare subsidies for a family of four with two parents receiving UI benefits is the equivalent of more than $60,000 a year in cash and benefits.

In roughly half the states today, while receiving UI and health insurance subsidies, an unemployed couple can earn more than a firefighter, a construction worker, a retail clerk, or a machinist earns from working 40 hours a week.

No wonder working people feel like they are getting ripped off.
