Letter - Encouraging people not to work

Published 03/14/2012, Alexandria Echo Press

To the editor: I would like to make a comment about Representative Mary Franson's video. I know a person a few years back that had a heart attack and was supposed to take six to eight weeks off from work to recover. The family went in to get food stamps to help them out while this person was recovering and they were turned down because they had jobs! They were told to quit their jobs and then they would qualify for food stamps.
