Abraham: Food Stamp Work Requirement In Motion

May 17, 2018

Congressman Ralph Abraham thinks able-bodied people should work to receive their food stamps. The new U.S. farm bill would rework the food stamp rules. It will require many recipients to work 20 hours a week or go to job classes  to help them become more employable. 

The issue of working for food has divided both the Republicans and Democrats.  Over 40 million people receive the food benefits.
