Welfare growth in California

I read an interesting item in the April Republic, Ruffalo’s Corner, page 20, mid page:
“Since 1997, the number of welfare recipients in CA dropped from 2.5 million to 1.1 million. Oddly, during the same time frame, payrolls for welfare workers rose from $1.58 billion to $2.72 billion. Even more strange is that the state had 46,681 welfare workers in 1997, but after welfare rolls were more than halved, we now have nearly 70,000 welfare workers.”

Tell me what you think
