Al--got the same responses from two other cashiers--Walmart in BH and another grocery store. Don't know if you watch this sort of thing or not, but I've noticed that the people in front of me in line nearly always whip out an EBT card--whether I"m in Stv or BH. Doesn't seem to matter where or what store.
I suggest asking cashiers you know--in Stv it's easy to do, or any place where you regularly shop and have a rapport with cashiers. the question is, what % of transactions involve EBT cards? I don't care if it's food stamps, or cash, or WIC, or whatever--all the same in terms of funding.
Mgrs may be distinguishing between the various programs. Or, if they sense they are talking to a conservative, they may not want people to know how dependent their business is on government (taxpayer) funded sales. Also consider that they might be liberal themselves.
MI has a reputation for 'redistributing" more than most states. That's why the state legislature recently passed a law requiring new welfare recipients to have been state residents for at least a year prior to applying for state programs. Previously, people could start the application process immediately, and high pay outs mean the state attracts people looking for hand outs.
'Course, it would be proper for all state agencies to post their annual expenditures online. Taxpayers have a right to know how our money is being spent. Hoogendyk introduced a bill that would have required that several years ago--it was soundly voted down by our "representatives". MI legislators do not want taxpayers to know how they spend our money.
I know two people who work for MI Works. One of them is a case worker--that individual has a case load of 100 people. In Berrien Co, a single mother with one child receives $650/ mo for rent, $600/mo in food stamps, and $600/mo in cash.
"Single mom"--it's a tough road for people who do it well, but a career move for some. Liberal psych types constantly talk about how damaging it is to "enable" people--well, this is "ennabling" on an insane level.
Frankly, I would expect any manager to know less about daily goings on at any store than the cashier that actually does the work - I would also expect the manager to not want to think about 1/2 of their clientele being on food stamps...
Lol Todd - I never got a person yesterday, but left messages for 18 members of senate - I was able to ask 1 of the receptionists what the mood of the callers was and she said "angry, bordering on livid". Yay... not that I expect any change from BHO & the crowd there.
Term limits are what we need
Spoke with two cashiers this week and asked them how many of their sales involve EBT (welfare/food stamps) cards.
The cashier at the new Meijer in Stevensville said 50%. The clerk at Martins in Stv said 50%--in the evening (as working people are returning home), but 90% during the day.
And Obama continues to say we can't afford to make cuts. As Cain says, "We don't have a revenue problem, we have a SPENDING problem."
“The former pastor of a network of Christian house churches in Iran has been told to exchange his faith for his life, according to news reports and human rights groups.”
Please pray for this man. The Qur’an demands death for Muslims who convert to Christianity (and anyone else who refuses to follow the Qur'an).
