The ‘Protestant Work Ethic’ Really Does Fight Poverty
Puritans and other Calvinists, he said, later recast that labor as an ascetic practice itself—working was a way of fulfilling one’s duty to God. Wealth for Protestants became “bad ethically only in so far as it is a temptation to idleness and sinful enjoyment of life.”

Methodists, Baptists, and others shared these basic ideas, Weber said. He cited John Wesley’s advice as representative: “If those who gain all they can and save all they can will likewise give all they can, then the more they gain, the more they will grow in grace and the more treasure they will lay up in heaven.”

In short, Weber argued, these Protestant religious beliefs led inevitably to Europe’s work ethic, to its attitude toward wealth and specialized labor—and, in short, to modern capitalism. It’s worth noting that Weber’s essay is more lament than celebration. “The Puritan wanted to work in a calling; we are forced to do ...

Working does result in the individual getting out of poverty.

Wayfarer Pilgrim, Totally false that Catholics don't encourage others to work.

I am a believer in working. I sent an email to a guy who was the Director of Housing at the now closed homeless shelter where I previously resided in Hastings, Minnesota. I asked that guy if there was a full time Data Entry or other office position available in the business office of what is now a detox facility. The man stated that a woman who works in the business office is retiring soon and there will be an opening for a full time Data/Entry/Office worker. So there is a good chance I will obtain a full time Data Entry/Office position at that organization.

John of UK, you and Wikipedia had the same thing in mind. There is quite a different number of ideas on wealth and poverty, or for Protestants three main ones? See the article.

Wikipedia at various times as good articles on various topics and it did a fairly good job on this one --

Wikipedia wrote:
Wealth as an outcome of faith

One line of Protestant thinking views the pursuit of wealth as not only acceptable but as a religious calling or duty. This perspective is generally ascribed to Calvinist and Puritan theologies, which view hard work and frugal lifestyles as spiritual acts in themselves. John Wesley was a strong proponent of gaining wealth, according to his famous "Sermon 50," in which he said, "gain all you can, save all you can and give all you can." It is impossible to give to charity if one is poor, obviously. John Wesley and his Methodists were noted for their consistently large contributions to charity in the form of Churches, Hospitals and Schools....

Of course, the orchestra of the federal government has many ecumenical and Catholics running various departments and apparently don’t no nothing about work or encouraging others to work. But they do know how to make a mess of things.

As a Christian, we should not label ourselves as Protestant. We are not member of Catholic Church, Protesting it. Protestant means protester, does it not?

Very true. I wish I could see just how much treasure I have in heaven and how much I have on earth, and perhaps be jolted into greater action.
