Not just the rich that use bankruptcy as a scam. I'm a member in the fico forums and see people filing for bankruptcy that shouldn't be. They are very capable of paying off their debts but choose not to.
The poor use their lack of ambition as an excuse to scam unemployment. My woman is finishing up her nurse practitioner degree this year. Schools didn't close. While these people were on unemployment they could have went and got an education. LPN school is 1 year, pays anywhere between $27-40/hr.
But no, let's sit around and collect unemployment, food stamps, not pay rent, and now they're getting food cards for their kids for the summer. Why? Why is it everyone's responsibility to support these people and their kids but theirs? To top it off there are people that I work with who's significant other NEVER worked or haven't worked for 10+ years collecting unemployment. The fücked up thing is they got it IMMEDIATELY while people who got legimately laid off during covid had to wait 3-6 months for their unemployment.
Am I living in some kind of twilight chit man? This country is backwards and slipping fast. It wasn't great under the past few presidents but it is looking more and more bleak as the time goes on.
