Letter: America, land of the freeloader

America is getting lazy and entitled!

I have owned companies for 32 years and employ more than 80 people right now, and boy have I seen a change!

The American work ethic is gone. The American work ethic has been destroyed by this huge safety net for the lazy and the quitters.

Welfare, food stamps and Section 8 handouts have gone wild, and now workers comp fraud, disability fraud and EDD extension after extension are killing any motivation to work. Now you know why jobs are leaving - everyone plays the lazy system.

These programs are killing America. Churches, family charities, neighbors and friends will step up if government will stop handing out free money - our money!

Why work?
