24 Ga. Counties to Implement Work Requirements for Food Stamp Recipients


(breitbart.com) - The state of Georgia will implement new work requirements for those receiving food stamps in 24 counties across the state.

Originally a pilot program in three counties, the program requires that all able-bodied adults without children either get a job or lose access to food stamps.

Since the pilot program’s start in January, the number of food stamp recipients decreased by 60 percent!

In Georgia, 1.7 million Americans participate in the food stamp program.

The food stamp work mandate was introduced back in 1996, but it stopped in recent years. Georgia is just one of many states to re-introduce this type of program.
