HUGE Decrease In Food Stamps Since WORK REQUIREMENTS Put In Place!

Alabama made the controversial move of implementing work requirements in order for people to receive food stamps in thirteen counties there. Guess what happened? There was an 85 percent drop in food stamp enrollment. Looks like there were a whole bunch of folks scamming the system there and now they are being forced to go back and work for a living. That’s the way it should be. Good for Alabama. 

This new rule applies to able-bodied adults who do not have children. Certain counties are being exempted in Alabama due to high unemployment. These requirements were already reinstated in 54 counties in Alabama. These 13 additional counties have experienced a recovery in the jobs market and therefore are now subject to the new food stamp rules. Under the new rules, these adults can only receive three months of food stamps over three years unless they have a job or are participating in a government-approved job training program.  More.....
