Gov. Paul LePage decided to make a move on food stamps in maine and introduced a three-month limit on benefits for able-bodied adults without dependents (Abawds).
The liberals are naturally, devstated and angered and are blaming it all on the conservatives. However, this limit is carried out only when the “Abawds” don’t accept a job that requires 20 hours a week, and the same goes for training and six hours of volunteering per week.
After this happened, around 80 percent of people on welfare were dismissed from this program sisnce they did not want to take the 6 volunteering hours.
However, those hours were important to get free benefits.
The food department is the busiest on Wednesdays, so parking problems arise from the situation as well. Crowds of people are overflowing the lobby and there is a general chaos happening.
This Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program should represent a supplemental food pantry.
During last year, the administration of Gov. Paul R. LePage, who is a Republican, tried to introduce a three-month limit (out of every three-year period) on food stamps for the Abawds group, if they are not planning to work 20 hours per week, volunteer for 6 hours and engage into trainings. The Abawds in question have dropped in number by almost 80 percent to 2,530 from about 12,000.
“It means life gets tougher for those childless adults who face barriers already getting back into work,” said Ed Bolen, a senior policy analyst at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
These individuals all have limited education and used to work in a post-recession labor market, after which some of them still remained unemployed.
The volunteering process they are complaining about is 6 hours per week or 1.2 hours of work a day.
These peoiple have gotten so lazy that they refuse to be employed.
Although many people like to be employed, they are not motivated to progress and do something about their jobs. All they want are the commodities that come with a job, but no work included is great to them. The job market is not so weak, as are the people who refuse to put some effort into the stregthening of this country.
The governement is not the one to blame for making reforms, but the individuals who are crushing the system on a daily basis. And afterwards, we will hear plenty of critique about the economy. How hypocitical is that?
