101M Get Food Aid from Federal Govít; Outnumber Full-Time Private Sector Workers

Quote:
That means the number of Americans receiving food assistance has surpassed the number of full-time private sector workers in the U.S.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 97,180,000 full-time private sector workers in 2012.

The population of the U.S. is 316.2 million people, meaning nearly a third of Americans receive food aid from the government.

Of the 101 million receiving food benefits, a record 47 million Americans participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. The USDA describes SNAP as the ďlargest program in the domestic hunger safety net.Ē

The USDA says the number of Americans on food stamps is a ďhistorically high figure that has risen with the economic downturn.Ē

Why no policies are in place to give incentives to employers hiring unemployed people in US?

And the corporation whose employees receive the greatest number of food assistance is Walmart. In addition, Walmart gets all sorts of other tax breaks and subsidies. Much of what is in the stores is made overseas, and then the people working in the stores need medical and food assistance.

It certainly makes sense for people to seek the best price, but the price wouldn't be so low if it weren't for the subsidies, tax breaks, low wages, and products made in other countries under poor working conditions.

The lowest price means the lowest wages. It doesn't have to be this way.
