Re: Today`s
New York Reader Notes Junk Food Industry Benefits From
Third World Immigration—At Taxpayer Expense

I am a cashier at a large
supermarket chain that services

eastern Pennsylvania

In my community—which has its fair
share of immigrants—our food stamp problems are more
severe than whether someone is buying


potato chips

While I fully agree that it is an
outrage that

food stamp recipients
abuse their taxpayer- funded
privileges by purchasing

junk food
with our hard earned money, the

Access card
issued in Pennsylvania allows its
holders to get cash back at the checkout line.

Compare it to your debit card.
After your transaction is complete, your cashier asks
you if you would like cash back. The same applies with
the Access card. Assuming the client has a sufficient
balance in his account, he can withdraw up to a $50
maximum in cash per transaction.

Naturally, the customer can use the
$50 for whatever purpose he chooses—alcohol,

or maybe even to buy a

fake drivers license

Tyler reports that while she was once
“shocked” by the level of welfare fraud, she now
considers it all to be in a day`s work.
