I also see a lot of cheaters. Like, people who use EBT to buy 20 cases of redbull (which have 32 redbulls per case, and cost over 50 bucks), or entire pallets of candy bars. These people are using EBT to buy product for resale. Yup. The few, the proud, the small business owner cheaters.
I also see my share of people who refuse pay raises, or promotions, every year. When asked why? Doing so would bump them off of certain financial aid. Quite a LOT of people, actually. The majority? I can't say. But enough to cause me concern.
