Stupid dshs....

Dshs says I make too much for them to give me food stamps or money benefits now.

But according to this website...

If I was working 40 hours a week at my wages I would be making 46% of the median income for a family size of 1 person. (not my family size, I'm a family of 2) I do not work 40 hours a week. At 32 hours per week average I would make 33% the average of a family of 2.

If I was working full time hours (40) at my current wages, which mind you are journeyman level, highest before manager positions, I would still only be making 41% of the median income for a family of 2. I'm not even making HALF of the average income. Half is what 1 adult should be pulling in, right? I'm not. But according to dshs I make too much for assistance.

Logic? None.
