If someone like the goverment or some charity or anybody would give you $1500 a month to live on would you quit working and try to live of that money. I only make a little more than that, so i probably take it and work just a couple hours a day. How about you? Would you still keep your job so you can have all the money.

In the matter of managing money, I always strive to multiply it by using the best possible strategy and source,no matter of its amount. Money needs to be wisely invested to create more value and utility. I will not relax in my usual work,even if I am offered a free gift of substantial amount,because I enjoy my work and create value for me and for others. Money needs to grow at higher and compound rate to ensure more development and prosperity for all. Thanks.

Since I don't make any money staying home with my kids then of course I'd take the money. When I was working though, before kids, that is about how much I was making in a month so it wouldn't make much difference if I quit my job. Although I had decent health insurance when I was working. Unlike now since we pay for our own health insurance.

of course, it gives a little help on my monthly expenses, but I still have to work for myself, money is not always free, you have to work hard to achieve what you want to have...

The only way the government gets money is from taxes and charities get their funding from donations although in some countries like Australia, they also get a certain amount each year from the government. For every person they gave this amount of money too, that would be one less person paying taxes. Sooner rather than later the government would not have the revenue coming in and the funds they once had available would be gone. Where is the money going to come from then? Yes, people who are aged and at retirement age plus those who have a disability which prevents them from working should receive a pension from the government. If a person cannot genuinely find work then they should receive some help as well but it should not be the equivalent to what a person would get if they worked. If there is nio incentive for people to work, then for an element of society, they would take the mney from the government or charity and not even look for work. No I would not take the money because I think that my self-respect is more important and I would lost that if I took money from the government when I am capable of working.
