I got this notice in the mail saying i have to get a job to continue getting my food stamps. i am in school Tues, Wed, and Thurs, and I do my mandatory internship Mon and Fri. I suppose I could get a job on the weekends but ya know, I would like to see my kid every once in a while. I dont get to see her enough as it is with school always getting in the way. I don't understand this, did something change? Before I was told that I'm ok because I am in school fulltime. I tried to call the Dept of Human Services office but you can never get through. Do i not deserve to eat because I don't have time for a job? Or do I not deserve to see my kid because I can't afford food and have to get a job? WTF this is so irritating! How do they expect anyone to "get ahead" when they make rules like this? If I get a job I will most likely have to cut back on school, and I was really hoping to graduate at the end of the summer. I already tried the job thing anyway, and no bueno.not while in school with this many hours. If you are on foodstamps, do you have to have a job? Is this just some Texas law?
