WHAT ABOUT FRAUD?
Mr - . T
The USDA June report ; t<r
the Senate Agriculture Com
mittee said that the percent
age of households fraudulent
ly getting food Stamps in 1,974
was 8/100 of one percent, that
is 8 out of 10.000.
The question was asked:
“Can able-bodied persons
refuse jobs that .have been
found for them and collect
C7
food stamps instead? ’’ The
answer is that ail abie-.bodied
persons between the ages of
18 and 65 must register for
work as a prerequisite to
getting food stamps (unless
they are responsible for the
care of cttildren or incapacita
ted adults, or are a student at
least half time at an accredi-
ted institution.) If a person
refused to register for work,
his entire family is denied
food stamps. if a
job is located for a work
registrant, he or she must
accept it, except under
extenuating circumstances, or
his or her entire family is cut
from the program.
