I watched the first few minutes of the show. From what I saw it was given a great message to young girls/ women that with hard work to your craft anything is possible. They recognized a young lady who I think was between the age of 14-16 who had started a natural hair product line that grossed over $100,000. This young lady gave to the people in Hati while at such a young age starting a company based on a family recipie.
In response to our people becoming dependant on the system. I would agree but not just our people but across the board. Social Services is intended for short- term benefits not a way of life for long- term care.
I think about those who are generational users of the system who know no other way of life but what has been taught to them. In the skeem of things what incentives do people have to leave the system?
Once on they qualify for Food Stamps, Medicaid and most likely housing such as Section 8 or some type of subsidized housing. There is no incentive to leave the system. I'm not saying this of all people but those who have abused it for years.
It's sad that older people who've paid into the system cannot qualify for as much as the younger folks who haven't paid into the system. It disturbs me as how we as a society have so many young folks receiving so form of disability payment stating they are unable to work.
When I grew up during the 80's and 90's it was instilled in me early on you work for what you want in life. Don't always depend on someone to do it for you. It seems so many have given up before even trying.
