Not cut. Just making them do non productive busy work for their food. Been through that before. It's a good thing. Nothing to write home about, though.

Only if they didn't except gov't paid voc training or the forementioned busy work jobs. Otherwise, if they qualify they still get food.

The working poor have always gotten food, and still will.

Of course it's not there. It wouldn't fit zero's narrative, so folks like you wouldn't read it.

Some 688,000 food stamp recipients will have to find work by April or risk losing benefits as the Trump administration issues a final rule making it harder for states to get exemptions from work requirements.

Effective April 1, many of those able-bodied recipients will be limited to three months of food aid over a three-year period unless they are working, in job training or participating in volunteer opportunities for at least 80 hours a month. The work requirements have existed since the mid-1990s, but many states receive waivers for counties with higher unemployment rates or where jobs are scarce.

My ad blocker will not let me read that article.
There seems to be a discrepancy between the numbers.
But there seems to be agreement that these people are going to have to get out and do something.

Hopefully some will.

But we can't underestimate the ingenuity of a slacker. And if you are a heathy person with no kids on foodstamps, you are slacker.
