Worker Shortage

Americans value a temporary safety net, but they think work should be an integral part of receiving public assistance. FGA supports a universal work requirement across all four major welfare programs—food stamps, Medicaid, housing, and TANF. Work is the best way to improve lives and regain independence.

Stopping Welfare Expansion Efforts

Welfare expansion efforts by the federal government and many states are keeping able-bodied adults out of the workforce, making the worker shortage even worse by paying people to stay home. These plans should be rejected.
