Alms for the Shareholders

Every single cent of tax you pay into welfare for persons that are working but still in poverty is a direct payment into the pocket of private corporate shareholders. By subsidizing the housing and food of impoverished workers through your tax payments, you are allowing the corporate shareholders that employ them to not have to do the same. They work for the corporations, the corporations capture the private profit, and you pay the workers from your own check. Fair is indeed fair. You are allowing private corporate shareholders to enrich themselves off your largess, while simultaneously not providing a basic standard of living for the workers devoting their precious life-times to the shareholders’ private wealth accumulation. Corporations such as McDonald’s and Wal*Mart have turned this perversion into an explicit business model.
