Nearly 700,000 People to Lose Food Stamps With USDA Rule Change

Nearly 700,000 People to Lose Food Stamps With USDA Rule Change.

The Trump Administration finalized new work requirements for those on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

The original rule required those between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled to work at least 20 hours a week for more than three months.

The new rule restricts states from waiving the requirement in areas with high unemployment and instead requires a 6 percent unemployment rate.

The USDA claims the change will save the government $5.5 billion over five years.

The change is set to go into effect April 1, 2020
