37. No one, I mean no one
else does what America dies.

In the UK, if you are a single person, our Social Security system is somewhat crap.

If you have been working, your full rent is covered for 13 weeks, no matter how expensive. You get 65 ($100) a week to spend how you choose. All local taxes are paid.

In France, the same, except you get $200 a week.

In the UK, if you have a child, you can get up to $30,000 to help with child care costs and food costs so that you can remain in work.

There are also schemes to help you transition from unemployment benefits to in work benefits, including paying the full rent for the first month returning to work.
