Majority Of Young Americans Live In A Household Receiving Welfare

Will they be called The Welfare Generation?

New analysis from CNS News finds that the majority of Americans under 18 live in households that take “means-tested assistance” from the US government.

The study, based on the most recently available data from the Census Bureau, leads with the question: Will they be called The Welfare Generation?

The data presented by CNS editor Terrence Jeffrey shockingly reveals that in 2016 “there were approximately 73,586,000 people under 18 in the United States, and 38,365,000 of them — or 52.1 percent — resided in households in which one or more persons received benefits from a means-tested government program.”

That majority is also on welfare. To solve that problem - No work no welfare. See help wanted signs ever where. That generation wants to start at the top - not going to answer to anyone older than themselves.
