Governor Requires Food Stamp Recipients to Volunteer Six Hours a Week, This Happens Right After


foodstampsFood stamp recipients in Maine got a rude awakening when Gov. Paul LePage decided to impose a three-month limit on benefits for able-bodied adults without dependents (Abawds).

Now, before all the raging liberals out there start throwing a hissy fit and talking about how much conservatives hate the poor and all that bleeding heart rhetoric, this limit is only enforced if the “Abawds” refuse to get a job working 20 hours a week, take job training, or volunteer six hours a week.

Guess what happened when this rule was enforced?

Nearly 80 percent of people on welfare were cut off the program because they refused to get a job or volunteer to work six hours a week.

Six hours a week was deemed too strenuous to work in order to receive free benefits.

Unbelievable isn’t it?
