This proves, as all subsidies prove, that if you pay people to do something, you will get what you pay for. If you pay people to stay in subsidized housing, they will diligently work to maintain that subsidy. John is right, as usual, that such subsidies sap incentive (although the example of the woman who developed a website shows she could turn her innovation to something profitable). Most people get other subsidies besides Section 8, so their incentive is to maintain that and not work or take work under the table (off the books).
