Denying food stamps to families of striking workers?
Not satisfied with the current measures against collective bargaining, some politicians on the federal level are now proposing legislation that would make families of striking workers ineligible for food stamps. The provision, buried in a bill about welfare programs, states: “No member of a family unit shall participate in the food stamp program at any time that any able-bodied work eligible adult member of such household is on strike as defined in the Labor Management Relations Act.”
How do people feel about this? And what will the politicians think of next…?
