Food stamps

| 0

I’m a permanently disabled woman with a college degree but no job. I get SNAP benefits (they aren’t enough) and just enough Social Security to keep me in a rent-controlled efficiency apartment. I dress myself from the charity of other people. I haven’t had a new pair of shoes in 4 years. And sometimes I get so sick of being poor that when I run out of food stamps, I steal from the supermarket. Maybe I should feel bad… but I don’t. The corporation will absorb the loss of an apple. I, on the other hand, have nothing to absorb it with.
