VIA| This mother of eight has never had a job and has never had any intention of getting one; however, something just happened that is forcing her to start looking for her first job ever.
When people think they can live off of the government and believe they are entitled to these benefits, they clearly lose their motivation to work unless they are mandated to. This story is sickening.
Buchan has never had a job and now she’s being forced to find her first job ever in order to care for her children. It’s hard to feel sorry for her as she has been living off of government benefits for so long and abusing the system.
Buchan first made headlines when she publicly complained that she could not live off of the $40,000 cap from the government. She made headlines again when she was caught purchasing over-the-top, expensive Christmas gifts using money provided by the government.
“This benefits cap is getting out of control,” Buchan said. “I think you are going to get similar cases as to what happened with the bedroom tax – people taking their own life due to the financial pressures they are feeling. It will hit people that hard.”
“I did attempt to start work in the past and had it all in place to do a 16 hour cleaning job,” Buchan said, “but the kids didn’t want to get ready in the morning, so I could leave. It is going to be so tough.” I know plenty of working mothers who deal with this on a daily basis. This is a reality of life Buchan will soon learn she has to face.
Buchan claims she works 21 hours a day caring for her eight children, all under the age of 13.
