you hit the nail on the head. this is just human nature... freebies are not helping these people in the long run. i let my niece live with us rent free. she has an ebt card i told her to get a job. she did got one making $10.50 worked 4 weeks then quit. most of these kids younger ones want to chat on facebook watch netflix and just hangout
