Under the law, single, childless, able bodied adults aren’t allowed to draw food stamps more than 3 months without getting a job or participating in a public service workfare program. NCDHHS wants to ignore this work requirement in 77 counties.
Legislators should put language in the budget enforcing the work requirement. Able bodied adults need to work for any welfare benefits.
