Exactly, the solution to poverty is not to create more poor people. Which is exactly what all these government social programs do.
If you don't like your job or your paycheck, then you go get the education or training required to get a better job with better pay. It's as easy as that if you live in a free country. If you can't afford the education, then just take the initiative to teach yourself.
