Re: Food Stamps eligibility requires you HAVE A JOB, yes you read that right....
like any other govt. entitlement program what you get depends on race and gender. most govt. jobs go to minorities. the power they wield is devestating to white males. minorities are encouraged to live off the system we pay for. the joke will be on them when white people are the minority. we can only support so many.

Re: Food Stamps eligibility requires you HAVE A JOB, yes you read that right....
why would you need food stamps
support if you got a job?, isn't food stamps for people who
do not have a job and need food to live?.

No, in my state, Washington, you could earn up to 1147.00 a month and still be eligible for 43.00 a week in food stamps.

And if you're not working you have to be actively looking for work to qualify.
 Quoting: Vision Thing


What if you don't earn anything?, they would tell you go get

a job before we give you food stamps?, which in that

case it wouldn't make that much sense going into that

support program since you already working.


I always thought the program was for people who didn't have

a way to get money for food, not if you could buy food but

need that money for other living expenses.

You're thinking is only hispanics and blacks in this program?

they might be the majority in there but don't act like

white families are not part of this, specially now in these

struggling times expect more americans white to join the

program.

My mother was talking to a neighbor who went to see if
why she gets some food stamps but her son doesn't, he lives
with her and is 20 and goes to college( scholarship ) but is
not eligible.


Supposedly now if you're a son or relative of a person in
food stamp program then other things apply,
unless you have a job( part time/full, it must be 20 hours
atleast) you do not get food stamps support.


Does that make any sense?, why would you need food stamps
support if you got a job?, isn't food stamps for people who
do not have a job and need food to live?.


Maybe they want to make sure your not sitting at home collecting all sorts of checks from different agencies : unemployeement, disability, SS, welfare, etc.

Someone working 20 hours a week at minimum cannot support a family very well. So they need help



The mom is on SSI and she gets some food stamp support but

she wanted to know why her son who is in school doesn't

get any, that's when they told her he needed to have a job

and go to school at the same time to receive support.


She didn't understand why he needed a job, if he had a job

he wouldn't be asking for food stamps, I think food stamps

should be given to anybody who doesn't have a job NOT to

those that have a job, they got money to buy food unlike

a jobless person.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1174747

When in college a person generally has loans that pay not only for school, but for living expenses...

When you're getting a check for living expenses, you don't need food stamps...

If you only get enough loan money to pay tuition, you might need a job to buy food, not having any loan money left over for living expenses, but, as is true of many part-time jobs, that job may not be enough to fully cover all living expenses, thus the need for food stamps while employed...

This kid lives with mommy and off of her foodstamps... too bad, so sad... get a freakin' job, loser.

It varies state by state. here's a prescreener. I ran it as a single person and basically I am not eligible because enormous (1100/month) SS is too high.

why she gets some food stamps but her son doesn't, he lives

Shit head.. how about doing a little math ok ???


20 hours a week, at 7.50 an hour....


150 dollars... Now the government takes about 20 bucks of that...


So 130 x 4 = 520 dollars a month..

All lives are not the same, if the American realm was like yours then this food stamp situation would had never existed, some people out there are not as fortunate sadly and that's where the support comes.

Can you imagine how the USA would look if this didn't exist?, it would be ugly, some babies and families out there live another day just because of this kind of support, aside from the people who try to used it even if they don't need it this program is greatly packed with people who can't survive without it.

..


And WHY is the Federal Government the
best choice to Administer this program to people?

The problem is we have too many people falling between the cracks, because there are too many cracks.

example.

25 year old, physically disabled due to accident, both parents dead,
cant afford college, refused financial aid because of some bullshit, cant work because of disability, refused food stamps because he cant work, lives in a rural environment, bad economy, no jobs anyway.

I see shit like this happen more often than you think.

Food stamps aren't for people who can work but choose not to. Why should I pay for food cash some guy who's already going to school on someone else's money? And his scholarship probably already covers living expenses.
