The average unemployment rate in Ohio's eight largest cities is about 12%. Seven of them have unemployment rates higher than almost all 26 counties where work requirements for food stamps are waived. Read more in my latest paper communitysolutions.com/research/recei…
.@NPRWeekend just interviewed @KSPrior, because we can never highlight enough far-right extremist views. Prior actually claimed Trump and @HillaryClinton were equivalent in their treatment of women (!!!) and applauded her students being disenchanted with the electoral system.
.@KSPrior teaches at Jerry Falwell's #racist@LibertyU where last year graduates returned diplomas en masse due to Fallwell Jr's grotesque support of Trump.
However, if not for section 8 housing, I would never have been able to get out of poverty. One year while I was in college, I supported my daughter on 7k for the whole year. When I get my social security report occasionally, I look at that year and my mind is blown.

2) What people eat and what people are supposed to eat and what people had access to eat has always been informed by power. In ancient times, it may have been the nobility eating meat and wheat bread while peasants ate potages. Nowadays, it’s what people should not eat.
3) Just because people are poor does not mean that they do not have their own food preferences, ideas about food, or habits around food. Folks who use SNAP/#foodstamps will use their benefits, as they are able, to buy the food they can afford within these frameworks.
