TracFone Wireless Launches SafeLink Wireless to Aid 1.5 Million Low-Income Households in New York
Participants Receive Over an Hour of Free Talk Time Monthly and Free Wireless Cell Phone
NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
Today, TracFone Wireless, Inc., America`s leading prepaid cell phone provider announced its launch of SafeLink Wireless in New York. SafeLink Wireless will serve as the company`s distribution of Lifeline - a U.S. government supported program for income eligible households that ensures telephone service is available and affordable for eligible low-income households.
I stumbled across this story and blood almost shot out of my eyes. It seems that if you're eligible for Food Stamps, Welfare or other Government Low Income assist programs, you qualify for a "free" cell phone as well.
Does the cell phone only dial out to potential employers? Is there a function on there that helps your ass find a job? If not, WHY THE F*** do you need a cell phone in the first place?
I'm so sick of these programs for deadbeats. Even if you work ONE minimum wage job for 40 hours a week, you end up earning $15,080 a year. The poverty level is at 10 grand right now. Man the f*** up and work hard if you want to own things, but get your fu**ing hand out of my pocket stealing my money so you can sit on your ass and watch Judge Judy all day. I've had it. :mad:
