So, below is post I made in another thread. As you can see I killed another one
I was really hoping someone would tell me I’m wrong, tell me my numbers are messed up...anything. Anyway here it is, tell me if you think this is
Did you know a single man, working forty hours per week at minimum wage, falls short of the income limit by $330 that qualifies him for food stamps in
PA? ($40 short and STILL qualifying during the five pay months?)
What’s up with that? I think that’s the problem. Maybe the answer is a higher minimum wage?
Working people are receiving food assistance, not only lazy bums. I'm pretty sure i read a few times that the majority of people benefiting from that
program are working.
If you raised minimum wage by 2 dollars, he would still be under the income limit by 10 dollars !!
Maybe big companies can afford to pay their employees a higher wage? If they did, maybe the government could chalk over a couple bucks an hour for the
small business minimum wage earners? Might not cost as much. Then... ONLY the jobless people would be eligible for government food assistance, right?
Then we could call all the food stamp recipients lazy bums YAY!!!
Seriously, just thinking out loud and I have no idea about financial crap and how the money flows...
