Americans Must Return to the Workforce

In a House Agriculture Committee hearing, U.S. Representative Rodney Davis urged the Biden Administration and officials at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to pursue changes in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) policies that encourage work-ready adults to return to the workforce.


There are currently 11 million work-ready adults who are receiving SNAP benefits that could start working immediately to fill the over-11 million open jobs in the United States. Getting these individuals to work could ease supply chain issues immediately, by increasing domestic production and productivity.
