Kiera, the woman in the video, has been on welfare for 12 years–since she was 18.

She now has four children but has no plans to get a job since she’s getting by on government support. 

Kiera receives almost $800 a month in food stamps, and another $500 in other welfare money. 

She said it’s worth it to raise her children with the money she’s given rather than search for work.
