If you’re poor why would you have kids ?

Huh? Since when do people thrive on welfare? They live exactly how everyone else does on welfare, usually at or below poverty. But when you don't want to work and have grown up in the cycle, it's the go to.

My sil has 5 kids, and has been on welfare since her first. She collects her cheque (payday she calls it) while doing side jobs like picking garbage and selling it on FB marketplace. Her best friend with 3 kids (possibly pregnant again), does this as well. My brother's ex, hasn't worked since she had his baby, and is pregnant for the third time (and high all the time bc weed doesn't hurt the baby apparently) again from another guy.

There are many many people out there like this.
