FoodShare

    

A major change to Wisconsin’s FoodShare program took effect this week. Starting April 1, able-bodied adults with no dependent children must work at least 20 hours a week or enroll in a job training program. If not, they’ll lose food stamp benefits.

We visited a public assistance center on Milwaukee’s near north side to talk to people about the new rule. Marie Peete says she has no problem with Wisconsin’s new rule.

Thousands of Wisconsin residents, who get what many call food stamps, will now have to work if they want to keep the benefit.

The state’s Legislative Fiscal Bureau has released a report on the possible impact of Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to require food stamp recipients to work.
