As a green card holder you CANNOT collect benefits except for medical benefits!
You should not. But many of them find creative ways to beat the system. Others choose to be low income in order to qualify for freebies.
"Them"? You were one of them! Look at how many of our people in RH are working 2 and 3 jobs to make ends meet and need wick to supplement income. I presume you can check the mean income of the area to verify their tremendous sacrifice to live there and how many of them needs a social safety net. I visited the area in 78 when it was a dump. I was coming from pristine Toronto and was aghast at how our people lived and survived. Their hard work in the sweatshops on Broadway and living like sardines that rehabilitate what was a dump made it habitable for you.
I was never one of them. Since age 18 I have been working legally to put my own food on the table. My parents taught me the value of hard work and how to become independent. Public assistance should be reserved for the elderly and disabled. Able bodied people should be working.
