New Yorkers Dropping out of job market and joining welfare rolls.

Post by Guest on Sun May 08, 2011 7:57 pm

New Yorkers are dropping out of the job market -- and joining the government welfare rolls.
Take the Feds' food stamp program, where nearly 3 million New Yorkers are currently enrolled. According to the latest figures from the United States Department of Agriculture, more than 263,000 New Yorkers applied in February for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or food stamps.

This article sort of pissed me off. Maybe I am misinterpreting it, but it seems like they are making us out to look like villains on foodstamps? Suspect

Nationally, the US Labor Department reports a 1.5 million decline in the unemployment levels over the last year, but the USDA reports 4.6 million Americans have signed up for food stamps over the same period.

Could that be the 99ers, who have no choice but to apply for food stamps, which now, with the high cost of food, only last 2 weeks out of the month, if you are lucky!

I made mine last 1 month. You have to buy a lot of potatoes and learn how to cook different potatoe dishes. Buy minced meat as well and learn how to cook food which lasts a while. Spagetti and minced meat is a good choice. Cheap and can last upto a week. I would also recommend looking into curry style dishes which you can pour over rice. I bought my own flour and now make home made tortillas as well. A 20 pound bag of flour is around 8.99 in california. I also bought a 10 pound bag of rice for 8.99. Ofcourse all this is based on the fact I am single. If you have kids I have no clue if you get more money on food stamps or not.
