    girlfriend is a social worker.  She's a medical case manager for HIV/AIDS patients in the Detroit area.  And not only does she not outright lie to her clients, not only does she not think it's fun to stick it to the lazy welfare queens, she does everything in her power to help them get approved for things like medicaid and MIDAP.  Just last week she had to battle just about every day with a specialized pharmacy to ensure that one of her clients would get the meds she needed.  She also doesn't get paid much.  But she does it because it's something she genuinely cares about, and considers it fulfilling.

    Yes, there are shitty social workers out there.  But how about we not paint all of them as shitty people.
