Beginning July 1, thousands of unemployed adults in Louisiana will have to seek job search and training assistance through the state’s workforce centers to continue receiving food stamp benefits for an extended period.
Gov. John Bel Edwards on Thursday signed an executive order establishing the first work restrictions on the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program here in nearly two decades.
“This truly is important. It’s historic,” Edwards said in announcing the new initiative. “We are striking the right balance as we move Louisiana forward.”
The end of Food Stamps in America is coming soon. The program is being used for snacks, energy drinks, candy and soda and was only intended to buy the staples for people to cook at home. Milk, cheese, cereal, oats, fruit, rice, meat, etc., The only way to get people back to work and off of any form of public assistance is to force them to work for it.
