In a move that was barely noticed due to the increasing number of distractions with this presidency, Donald Trump signed an executive order last week that requires several government departments to implement work requirements for people seeking federal assistance. Departments like HUD, Health and Human Services, and Agriculture will now force people to get a job or be kicked out of federal housing, lose their farm subsidies, or lose Medicaid and food stamps. Ring of Fireís Farron Cousins discusses the Trump administrationís war on the poor.

4. in wisconsin new food stamp work requirements is 30 hrs which per irs is full time

nice work if you can get it.

also means employer has to count you as full time and a whole lot of employers do not want to do that.

have kids with 20 hr week jobs....if they pull an extra shift management makes sure they do not get to 30
