1. An awful lot of people getting SNAP also work.

Are they supposed to do an additional 80 hours of "specified activities"? How about just offering them jobs that pay livable wages?

We must quit the pretension that there are jobs for everyone. There quite simply aren't and businesses certainly don't want that scenario to ever happen. And quit pretending that these government sponsored job search and training programs do anything other than provide a few jobs for the (government or more likely private contractor) trainers. This is simply enforced slavery for food.
