Before welfare people were motivated by an uncomfortable feeling known as hunger! If you were capable of working and chose not to then you went hungry! America could use a little more of this policy for people that can but choose not to work!
Luckily, the state of Alabama recognized that the system needs fixing, so they change one thing! Now, it’s time for – no work, no eat!
13 Alabama counties had an 85 decrease in food stamp recipients after work requirements were put in place.
This huge percent and proves that changes need to be implemented if we want to stop the finance attack on our country!
Via AL.com: “As of Jan. 1, 2017, there were 13,663 able-bodied adults without dependents receiving food stamps statewide. That number dropped to 7,483 by May 1, 2017. Among the 13 counties, there were 5,538 adults ages 18-50 without dependents receiving food stamps as of Jan. 1, 2017. That number dropped to 831 – a decline of about 85 percent – by May 1, 2017.
“Based on the trend, the number of (able-bodied adults without dependents) recipients for SNAP benefits is expected to continue to decline statewide and in the formerly 13 exempted counties,” according to Alabama DHR spokesperson John Hardy.
Good move! This change needs to be implemented nationally, otherwise, they just move to locations with less stringent welfare requirements. Everyone should earn welfare. You don’t come here, not work and get automatic government support. As President Trump’s job programs grow so will the increase in the need for welfare. We all need to get behind him.
If you can work, you should, especially when you are getting assistance! Welfare was implemented for emergency situations, NOT a lifestyle! If it would be used in that manner everywhere, that should help the budget in every state. Sadly, a lot of people abused the welfare system.
