As with every other responsible self-reliant person in America, you must work in order to buy food. The same now goes for certain food stamp recipients in Robeson County, and other rural counties in North Carolina.

The North Carolina legislature passed a bill that will go into effect in July of 2016, in rural counties, and January 2016 for non-rural counties. The legislation does not do anything new, but rather puts back into place existing, 19-year old, federal regulations. The regulation, “The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act” (1996) requires that all able-bodied individuals ages 18-49, meaning those without a special-needs disability preventing them from the dirty four-letter word known as W-O-R-K, must go get a job that is paid or un-paid (volunteer), or enter a return-to-work type of training program.

In essence, the welfare folks that choose to live like societal leaches, will have to step up and earn their bread and butter just like everyone else that can, does, and will continue to do so. If you don’t get with the program, you will lose those benefits for up to three-years.

This is fantastic! There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of knowing that you are self-accountable and able to take care of yourself and others. Trust us people who work day-in and day-out. While it has been a pleasure giving you a hand-up it is now time for you to pay-it-forward and enjoy giving the sweat of your brow to feed someone willing to sit back and watch you work. Welcome to the party.
