Wisconsin Food Share http://wuwm.com en Committee Approves Work Rules for Food Benefits http://wuwm.com/post/committee-approves-work-rules-food-benefits <p>The Legislature's budget committee has concurred with Gov. Walker, to require able-bodied adults to either work or attend job training sessions, in order to receive food share benefits.</p><p>The requirement would pertain to adults with no children and with incomes up to 200% of the poverty level (approx. $23,000 per individual), and demand 20 hours per week of working or training.</p><p>Those who don't meet the requirement, could only receive food 'stamps' for three months every three years.</p> Wed, 22 May 2013 16:52:40 +0000 Marge Pitrof 3848 at http://wuwm.com Committee Approves Work Rules for Food Benefits
