Abstract:
Social welfare is the minimum standard of living for a citizen in the United States. Latinos are the fastest-growing population in the U.S. and government safety nets, like social welfare, are in place so that in tough economic times, citizens do not fall into poverty. The Latino-American population receives higher rates of welfare benefits; however, there is a much larger underlying problem as to why a significant portion of this community needs such benefits.
