I currently live in a small South Georgia town, where more people are not working than are working. Our government has made it more beneficial for people to quit their jobs than to go to work everyday. It used to be where if you quit your job unemployment was not even an option. However, now people are aware that if they quit working they more than likely will be approved for unemployment. Once unemployed they will receive more help from our wonderful government. I know so many people who are very very capable of working, but instead are staying at home all day and then going to the grocery store with there 1200.00 in food stamps.
Meanwhile, hard working people such as myself are struggling to even be able to go to the grocery store-much less with 1200 a month to spend. I believe that this problem has gotten way out of hand and needs attention immediately. If we are going to continue to REWARD the non-working then maybe our grocery stores should be set up to have certain discounts on all food items for the working people and no discounts for the ones with foodstamps. I believe that many many years ago the original idea of government help was probably worthy and maybe even a good idea. However, today, now in this town, now in this time, it is truly a DISGRACE!!!!!!!!
