During the Great Depression, many people lived entirely on handouts of one kind or another when they could not afford lớn buy food. The term became especially popular among hobos, who developed a system of signs and symbols lớn describe the nature, quantity, and availability of handouts.

The term "handout" is used specifically in sociology and welfare analysis lớn identify direct payments or provision of goods, and lớn distinguish them from other forms of welfare tư vấn such as low-interest loans, subsidized housing, or medical care.[1] However, some people[who?] feel it has a negative connotation, with the implication that a handout is unearned and undeserved.[citation needed] "Give a hand up, not a handout" is a common remark among proponents of workfare or other welfare-to-work systems. Another dichotomy characterization is "to be lifted up by a rope" vs stepping up onto a "ladder of opportunity". A well-known saying along this line is "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man lớn fish and you feed him for a lifetime". The term "government handout" is often applied lớn both welfare systems as well as corporate welfare or pork.
