(Conservative Tribune) If the reasons some welfare leeches use to continue to receive benefits irritate you, then the reasons this man has come up with why he stays on welfare will surely make you want to blow your top.
Mohammed Salim, 58, who has been receiving benefits for 10 years, has no intention of finding a job — because he doesn’t have to.
Salim and his wife, Noreen, have 11 children — all of whom are provided for by the British government.
Salim doesn’t believe having 11 children is irresponsible, adding that he and his wife “don’t believe in contraception, we are following God’s first command, he said ‘go forth and multiply,’” he told Channel 5’s “On Benefits: 26 Kids And Claiming,” according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
The family receives 27,000 euros — about $30,000 — each year in benefits, and Salim expresses no regret for having such a large family. And he also has no intention of finding a job because he can make more money by not working.
“I have got qualifications and real work experience, but it is the system. I have been forced onto the dole,” Salim said.
“I am expected to do at least seven job applications a week, you are better off on the dole than working on a minimum wage,” he added. “It’s a sad state of affairs I can’t get a job in the U.K. I am not getting the results, people are not giving me interviews.”
It truly is a sad state of affairs when welfare recipients decide to keep having children just so they can get more taxpayer money and avoid working for a living.
Britain has its share of welfare abusers, of course, and other countries have theirs, like this guy in Sweden. And the United States has plenty to go around too.
But the U.K.’s Salim actually claims he is a workaholic. We would guess he means that he’s mastered the art of milking the system.
