Letters to the editor on job training, Syria

“The need is genuine” (Sept. 8 Eagle Editorial) correctly pointed out that the historic economic downturn has left many jobless and hungry. The editorial was critical of the Brownback administration for tightening eligibility requirements as of Oct. 1 for participation in the food-stamp program for able-bodied adults without dependents who work fewer than 20 hours per week. The editorial neglected to mention the most important aspect of the program is that able-bodied adults may continue food-stamp participation if they are enrolled in a job-training program.
