BOOM: 45,000 Welfare Recipients In Alabama Just Got Some DEVASTATING News!
On Jan. 1, a major change was made to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as food stamps, which ended the Obama administration-backed exemption to work requirements for welfare.
The expiration of the federal waiver means that all adults between the ages of 18-49 who aren’t disabled or raising minor children must work at least part-time in order to maintain their benefits, according to AL.com.
In Alabama, that amounts to roughly 44,386 individuals who will need to find a job if they expect to continue receiving welfare assistance after a three-month grace period ends in April.
These individuals receive on average about $194 per month in food stamps. If they want to continue receiving those benefits, they will be required to work at least 20 hours per week or enroll in a training program. More
