How the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 would rein in work requirement waivers gone wild

|

Key Findings:

  • More than 62% of able-bodied childless adults are exempt from commonsense food stamp work requirements.
  • States are exploiting loopholes and exempting able-bodied adults from working as possible from work requirements.
  • The House Farm Bill would close these loopholes and reduce the number of work-exempt able-bodied adults by 87%.

BOTTOM LINE:

It’s past time to rein in work requirement waivers gone wild.
