Food Stamp Growth Follows Red State Right-To-Work Policies
Obviously, the maps are not an exact match but I think they clearly show the republican platform driving red state politics work hand-in-hand with right-to-work laws. Beyond the regular comparisons that show laborers and professionals in right-to-work states earn less wages than their counterparts in bargaining states comes another insidious marker for red state economies: Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth.
All I can say is blue states with growing red county populations had better watch out as they may be the next dominoes to fall to RTW laws along with a growing dependency on food stamps.
Democurmudgeon - 70% of Counties with Fastest Growth of Food Stamps voted Republican.
