Welfare looks better than working
I am going to quit my job and collect welfare, get rid of all my stuff and live on the street. Then I can get free housing, medical and dental care. I’m tired of cooking my own meals, so instead I will just go to one of those soup kitchens. I don’t need a safe injection site, but how about a safe rolling site? My arthritis makes it difficult for me to roll joints, so I am in need of some harm reduction. I hear Vancouver is going to give free liquor to people who can’t afford to buy it. Can we get a plan like that in Victoria, too? I would love some free beer. That all sounds a lot easier than struggling with wages that rarely go up while the ever-increasing cost of living has knocked me from middle class to poverty.
