Ive worked as a cashier for many years and to be honest the people who get hurt the most by cutting food stamps are the children and people over 65.
You obviously didn't even pay attention to your own post. that is 24 hours a week, not 24 hours a month.
Now that individuals have to complete either 20 hours of part-time work a week, volunteer for at least 24 hours per month, or get involved in a vocational program, the amount of SNAP recipients has dramatically dropped from 12,000 to approximately 2,500 by the end of March…Impressive, right?

No I wouldn't work for two bucks that's why I went to school work hard all that.
Transportation I don't know don't care.
I've found a way always have. I'm sincerely unconcerned how someone stealing my money gets along. Yes if you're legally poor it's your fault. I promise if every poor person gave me their life story I could find fault. Cry all you want but some people are inferior to others, and I sincerely don't care if liberals starve in the streets. Schadenfreude.

i love how everyone is focused on the work part of it but nobody is paying attention to the
'or get involved in vocational programs'
so people can get food assistance AND get help finding finding a job...
oh me oh my...why ever would they do that?
i cant believe people are against this

Oh, so it's mandated then. I still don't find that to be a problem. Basically that's like free education but better because it's a education toward some job placement skill. I'm all good with that. In fact that is actually like giving them food plus something extra on top of it. So if that really is what they say it is I think that is great.
Really my only problem is with the 20 hours a week work part. Even that could be fixed by adjusting the pay per hour compensation part of it.
