Yesterday I was talking to a girl renewing her food stamps (I was turning in paperwork for foster care). The lady asked her if she was employed and she said no, just her husband worked. So the dhs lady handed her a workforce paper that had a list of available jobs. She walked out right in front of me and trashed it. Exact words "why would I work if I don't have to?"
Ummm because the state is supporting you!!
ALL ADULTS LIVING IN YOUR HOME SHOULD BE WORKING IF YOU ARE ON GOVT ASSISTANCE. Period - and yes I'm working in changing the law.
