Dependency Culture

The New Right political movement argued that as a result of the welfare state being created a dependency culture has influenced individual choices. The welfare state cost over £200 billion in 2015-2016 which made it the single largest area of government spending (Institute for Fiscal Studies, 2016). This has resulted in individuals now relying on the welfare state for support rather than seeking employment and supporting themselves without state help. As a result Murray argues this has created a work shy underclass which are not self-sufficient.
