Mother Explains Her Reason For Living Off Of The Government

Sue, 49, from Walsall, England, takes in around $2,500 monthly from the government. She said she doesn't want things to change, as she has six children from five marriages. She currently lives with her youngest two — Jade, 12, and Romeo, 11 – and hasn’t worked for an entire decade.

She says she perfectly happy receiving a "free" $30,000 a year.

Sue said, “If I could find a job that would pay the money and still live quite comfortably, then I would be happy to do that. At the end of the day, I would have to pay for someone to be with them straight from school and pay for clubs.”

She added, “So when you weigh everything up, you are better off being there for the children yourself. But the thing is, you still have to be there emotionally for the kids. Who is going to look after them?”
