There are plenty of well qualified workers who can't find work. There isn't enough work for the working population. How are we subsidizing poverty? You know who the biggest welfare recipients are? The military industrial complex. So let's start there if you want to stop welfare. OTOH, I'm all for stipends for everyone or what was once called a "guaranteed annual income" proposed by that old "commie" ..... Richard M. Nixon.
