Georgia Tells Able-Bodied Food Stamp Recipients to Work for ‘Greater Good’

Thousands of Georgia residents who depend on food stamps are losing their benefits because they have failed to meet the state’s new requirements that force the able-bodied without children to find jobs.

These new work requirements have been rolled out in phases for the past year. The latest round impacted approximately 12,000 people in 21 counties.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported more than half of them, or 7,251, were dropped from the food stamp program because they were not working.
