Woman fired from job because she did not allow a welfare recipient to purchase cigarettes with EBT card!!
Jackie Whiton, age 65, had worked as a cashier at the Big Apple convenience store in Peterborough, N.H., for years. But then a couple of weeks ago she committed a firing offense.

She refused to allow a welfare recipient to use his EBT card to buy a pack of smokes.

How dare a taxpayer say no to a member of the non-working class? This is verboten in Obama’s America.

So she was fired. That’ll teach her. The gimme guy was a young man, about 20, and when he asked for cigarettes, Jackie Whiton handed them to him but asked for his ID. He handed her his EBT card.

“I said to him, ‘Do you think that the man in line behind you and the lady behind him want to buy you your cigarettes?’ And he said ‘Yes.’ Then he said, ‘Give me back my card.’ And I said, ‘Give me back my cigarettes.’”

The kid left and the man behind him in line then told Jackie Whiton, “You said just exactly what I was thinking.”


“I’ve never seen the likes of it,” she was saying Monday night. “People who could work using welfare money to buy cigarettes and beer? And it happens all the time. A friend of mine was in another store last week and watched a woman buy three 18-packs of beer with an EBT card.”

...

The next day, the 20-year-old’s “foster mother” showed up at the Big Apple to complain about how her “son” had been mistreated. Jackie Whiton talked back again.

“I told her, ‘Use the money you get from the state to buy his cigarettes.’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ ”

sigh. ebt cards have a food option, and a cash option. the "money they get from the state" is put on the card. you can not buy cigarettes with food stamps.

and really? people are just ignorant. how about if we tell people on ssi they cant buy cigs, beer, or junk food? i think it is ignorant how people abuse the system, but this lady was a jerk, and yes, deserved to be fired. if a person is so concerned about how "their tax dollars" are being spent, protest military endeavors since that is where 80% of tax dollars go.

Now she should apply for unemployment and welfare and go back into that store and buy herself a pack of Marlboro's. No need to worry, if you can't beat em, join em.

WRONG - The total defense budget is 18%. Spending on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Unemployment is 56% of the budget. (2010 numbers)

I applaud this woman and wish that more would follow her actions. It's one thing to have a genuine need and except help to pay for food. It's another to expect taxpayers to pay for your bad habits.

'non-working' is a 'class' now?

anyone can go from 'taxpayer' to 'non-working'

but they did at one time pay taxes correct?

they may also be 'non-working' and still pay some form of taxes....

“I told her, ‘Use the money you get from the state to buy his cigarettes.’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’”
 Quoting: Laura Bow


but that is just it - you CAN NOT buy cigarettes with food stamps. It is NOT POSSIBLE. The computer system will not allow it to happen. and no one would be fired because of it.

the cashier obviously refused to take the card to pay for goods based on her own opinion (which is fine, people should have morals in their jobs, but then if someone had that much morals they wouldnt be working for a convenience store to begin with) so it is basically like she refused cash for payment based on her personal opinion. of course she got fired. and now i hope she has to go on welfare and learn what it is like to live in such a situation. and if she smokes cigarettes.. well that would just be karma in full.

Oh my goodness! Are you allowed buy cigarettes with EBT cards?! I had no idea. I don't know if there is a disability involved or not, but why is a 20 year old man unable to work to buy his own cigarettes?

All the idiots above who point out that child support goes on those cards should realize that CHILD SUPPORT IS FOR CHILDREN!!!! You should be using child support to provide food, housing, clothing, and medical needs for the child. Not to get yourself drunk or buy cigarettes.

really? well now.. i think your govt disagrees with your numbers. defense budget is 24.9%, vet benefits is 4.5%, international affairs is 1.6%, and "additional govt programs" is 7.9%. so there is like 38& of stated federal funds going to military endeavors. that doesnt include state taxes, or corporate taxes.

and if you distrust your govt, then you know that those numbers are lower than reality.

She should be fired. If I were the owner, I would fire her too for refusing to sell my merchandise to a willing buyer.

Secondly, she holds no authority over the man or his EBT card. She cant directly tell people what to do with their welfare money. In this case she wasnt just telling but also forcing him. If she wants EBT users to not buy cigarrets then call her mayor, start a petition, start a website and make her government to make this into a law. Otherwise, right now, she holds no authority hence she cant force people to buy or not but things she likes. Glad she's fired.

Re: Woman fired from job because she did not allow a welfare recipient to purchase cigarettes with EBT card!!
I'm glad she was fired. Food stamps buy food. Cash aid buys everything else. It is none of her business what anyone buys. So what about cigarettes, alcohol and junk food. You smoke and drink and eat it too. It is a luxury, but until they change the way the benefits are used by blocking certain transactions, it is legal and she should be fired. She is discriminating against the poor.
