I totally agree. I'm all for welfare, but it should be minimum wage unless you have kids - and then it should be marginally higher per kid. I was just looking at welfare amounts and I was shocked - in 7 states, welfare can pay more than being a teacher. Which says a lot both about why some people might just choose to stay on welfare, and why there are so few good teachers in the US these days...
