FS fixing idea number two

Having people completely relying on the government is wrong. Many children are born into this too and they don't know their true potential.

Its like raising your children. If you clean their rooms, dress them, do their homework and so on and never teach them they won't learn how to be self sufficient .. how to live! They won't have the confidence either.

They need a boost and TOOLS. How about if they can't find a job have them volunteer until they do find work! They are required this to keep their benefits. It will help them gain confidence, skills and experience and show their children a good example!

Welfare to work...what happened to that? 1 in 7 people are on FS. A change is needed. This isn't working.

So the elderly who can no longer work due to health, or disabled vets, or disabled adults need to volunteer to get fs? I am sure the people I just mentioned would much prefer to work rather than need the fs.

*Sigh* you do realize that a lot of people on food stamps work right? Or that in certain states if you want to have cash assistance you have to find a job and you take job training courses, you have to look for work for 40 hours a week and yes they really do call and make sure you are turning in applications and going to interviews....I know they do that for a fact because I was the one that got to call around to all these places and say "I'm so and so from such and such and I am just verifying that so and so turned in an application with your company" or I would say that I was verfying that they did have an interview. Whenever someone lied they would get disciplinary action taken against them. If they are caught in a lie on multiple offenses they do lose their benefits for x amount of months. If you are not working a full time job, lets say you are only working 20 hours and your worker feels that you could easily work 40 hours then guess what?! The other 20 hours that you aren't working you will be doing job search activities.

Of course there will be exemptions! I'm not talking about them. The ones that are able should participate

Yes...but yet there are still many that don't. I was on PA 13 years ago....I am aware of this. I also work with many children and families...PA has changed....for the worse

This is already law in California. Welfare-to-work.
