Tanner makes no sense to me unless I’m missing something. How does working to make less money, takes you out of poverty compared to being on welfare @$300.00 a week ? So you make 300 dollars a week on welfare and you are in poverty; you get a job and start working; and working pays wages of $200.00 dollars a week. How then does $200.00 dollars a week take you out of poverty but welfare and not working that pays you $300.00 a week leaves you in poverty? How does that make sense to anybody?
