New USDA SNAP Rules and Work Requirements Come at the Perfect Time for Job Seekers

The December 2019 jobs report, released on January 10, 2020 confirms what everyone already knows; the economy is strong and the jobs market is robust. 

The U.S. added 145,000 new jobs in December, the unemployment rate persisted at a fifty-year low of 3.5 percent, and average earnings rose slightly, with the year over year gain at 2.9 percent.

President Trump tweeted this week that "Tariffs are the greatest!" Farmers disagree.

The federal government will soon dole out around $12 billion in "temporary relief" to farmers adversly affected by President Trump's tariffs and trade war, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced on Tuesday. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters that amount was "in line" with the estimated impact from retaliatory tariffs on U.S. agriculture exports. 

The aid will be awarded to cotton, corn, dairy, hog, and soybean farmers as well as possibly others. It is scheduled to go into effect on Labor Day.
