Well, I have a job(part time for now) and I receive them. The amount is lowered based on income etc. I love all the anger at food stamp recipients,
but I think it's all those wall street assholes who, along with the gov, stole billions and jacked people's homes out from under them that you
should be mad at. I'm not seeing a check for another 2 weeks. Those stamps mean I got to eat today. Not a crackhead, just a struggling guy. So maybe
try compassion instead of anger and finger-pointing.
Ikr, there are so many bigotted replies in this thread. I was struggling to find work for 3 years. It wasn't froma lack of trying, I applied for jobs
everyday but apparently, because nobody would take me on, I was a useless bum. Makes me sick when I hear people talk like this.
Yes, there are people who take the piss out of the benefits system but there are also a lot of honest people, genuinely trying to find work and just
get rejection after rejection after rejection. There was an article in 'The Sun' *cough*, about a bloke who had applied for 15,000 jobs over the
course of 9 years and still, nobody gave him a friggin job.
I got lucky, a well respected company finally took me on for my abilities but there are many people out there who simply cannot get a job, no matter
how hard they try. Even people who have degrees etc.
You assholes who look down your nose at the unemployed because you are paying for them to live when they are genuinely trying, need a wake up call.
What happens when you get made redundant and nobody will take you on? Sounds like you need a wake up call.
This mess is not because of scroungers, it's because of the conspiracy by Government, corporations and big banks to turn us into slaves. Soon, these
facts are gonna hit you in the face and hard. You will see and when you do, I will say: ''told you so''! When you come crying on ATS that you have
been shat on, I will have no sympathy, you're feeding the agenda with your bigotry.
This is what 'they' are counting on...
I've said my piece.
