Letter: Is it apathy that allows this?
To the editor,
People are working in places like Walmart where the pay is so low that they qualify for food stamps, effectively this is “Corporate Welfare.” Their kids qualify for the federal school lunch program — probably the breakfast program, too — effectively more subsidizing of Walmart and places like it!
So why is it our Governor and elected officials get so “warm and fuzzy” when they bring these types of “Corporate Welfare” Enterprises to Rhode Island as if they feel it will help the unemployment problem instead of trying to return to the heavy industrial work that we were once famous for?
Is it Rhode Island apathy that allows this?
