Food security for low-income Vermonters on the line in Farm Bill squabble

first_imgby Alicia Freese May 30, 2013 vtdigger.org Competing farm bills in Congress could reduce food assistance for some low-income Vermonters and knock others off the program altogether, hunger advocates were told Thursday in Randolph Center.Senator Patrick Leahy’s office and Vermont’s Department of Children and Families briefed nearly 100 food-security advocates at Vermont Technical College on what the 2013 Farm Bill will mean for Vermont’s food assistance program.From left, DCF Deputy Commissioner Richard Giddings, Hunger Free Vermont program director Dorigen Keeney and Chris Saunders, a staff person for Sen. Patrick Leahy, field questions from a group of food advocates Thursday. Photo by Alicia Freese/VTDggerVermont receives about $12 million a month from the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly referred to as food stamps. 3Squares VT is the state program charged with disbursing these funds, which benefit roughly 101,000 Vermonters on a monthly basis.The federal legislation is still in flux ‘the House and Senate Agriculture Committees have passed different bills, and a lot hinges on how the two versions are reconciled. Both, however, contain cuts to SNAP.The Senate bill cuts $4.1 billion nationwide over the next decade. The House version is more draconian ‘it cuts roughly five times that amount. Floor debate on the bill began in the Senate last week; both chambers will continue to debate the legislation during the month of June. If Congress fails to pass a new Farm Bill, the SNAP program will stay intact.The speeches at the annual 3SquaresVT Outreach Conference on Thursday were part policy briefings, and part call-to-arms. Among the audience members were staff from veterans’organizations, shelters, senior centers, community action groups, schools, farmers markets and government departments.Dorigen Keeney, program director for Hunger Free Vermont, urged the advocates to push Vermont’s congressional delegation to preserve funding for 3SquaresVT.‘SNAP is being used as the punching bag to score political points in Washington.’Dorigen Keeney, Hunger Free Vermont ‘SNAP is being used as the punching bag to score political points in Washington,’Keeney said. ‘Last year, Sen. Leahy used your stories when he defended cuts to SNAP on the Senate floor. â ¦ He needs more of your stories now.’On top of the potential cuts embedded in the Farm Bill, states will see an across-the-board reduction in SNAP dollars Nov. 1, when American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding for the program is terminated. As a result, Patricia Duda, the food and nutrition director for DCF, estimates a family of three in Vermont will see their monthly grant drop by $30 to $40.The federal sequester does not impact SNAP.Leahy supports the Senate Farm Bill. He released a statement earlier this month saying, ‘I am disappointed that this mark once again includes $4 billion in cuts to the SNAP program, which will predominately come from Northeastern states. I understand these cuts represent a compromise on behalf of the chairwoman, and they are certainly far more reasonable than the draft House mark, which includes $20 billion in food assistance reductions.’Chris Saunders, a staff member from Leahy’s office, gave a scathing assessment of the House version at the gathering of food advocates. ‘We believe they are trying to balance the budget on the backs of low-income folks.’DCF officials aren’t pleased about the cuts in either bill, but they agree the Senate version is ‘not as toxic.’The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities estimates that almost 2 million people will lose their benefits if the House version is passed. DCF officials say they aren’t sure yet how many Vermont households are at stake, but the deputy commissioner of DCF, Richard Giddings, said the impact would be ‘huge.’The House bill eliminates ‘categorical eligibility,’a policy some states, including Vermont, have adopted to allow families to qualify for food assistance even if their gross income falls above the normal cutoff. In Vermont, for instance, people can qualify for food stamps if they receive Reach Up or the Earned Income Tax Credit. This has allowed the state to distribute SNAP money to families with incomes at 185 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) instead of using the federal standard, which is 130 percent of the FPL.Duda, who describes categorical eligibility as ‘one of the greatest things that’s happened’in the program for reducing food insecurity, predicted, ‘a lot of people that are eligible now simply won’t be because their resources are going to be subject our review.’The number of people receiving food assistance has skyrocketed at both the state and national level in recent years. In 2008, there were only about 55,000 people on 3Squares. That increase was driven by the economic downturn and the state’s decision to loosen eligibility standards.Both the Senate and the House bills restrict what’s known as the ‘Heat and Eat’provision. If a family on 3Squares also gets fuel assistance, it automatically qualifies for a utility allowance, which increases the amount of food assistance they qualify for. Vermont is one of a host of states that doles out miniscule fuels benefits ‘think $3 a month ‘so families can get this allowance. The Senate bill would make the minimum fuel benefit $10 dollars; the House raises it to $20.That will force states to choose between increasing the fuel benefit for these families and watching other benefits for these families drop.Saunders said Leahy is confident the state can offset the benefit cuts that accompany the Senate bill.‘We believe that the state will step up, and if the threshold has to be put it in place, it will meet that threshold,’Saunders said.Giddings said the governor’s office has asked his department to calculate how much it would cost for the state to pay those additional LIHEAP dollars. DCF doesn’t have firm figures yet, but Giddings gave an off-the-cuff approximation. Increasing the LIHEAP benefit to $10 for the 28,000 families that receive a smaller benefit would cost the state between $300,000 and $400,000. But, Giddings pointed out, it would allow Vermont to hold onto the $5 million to $6 million in federal funds that brings.‘Our department is committed to maintaining what we have and trying to figure out what would the governor potentially need to add back. But we don’t know yet where they are going to end up,’Giddings said.last_img read more

Single, childless and want work-life balance? How taboo

first_imgThe Washington Post: The Yahoo no-work-from-home brouhaha had working moms up in arms last week. Professional women with children had been dealt a blow, they said. Oh, and as one writer reminded us, it’s an issue for working dads, too.Okay, but what about all the single people? And all the people without kids? We need to stop acting like they’re not part of the work-life conversation.Whether it’s our pets or our parents, our health or our education, there are many facets of our lives besides children that, thanks to work, get short shrift. Recent research found that work’s interference with family obligations explained less than 15 percent of the differences in participants’ responses about their job satisfaction and mental wellbeing. “Work interferes with your ability to form romantic relationships, it interferes with friendships, it interferes with your health,” says Ann Marie Ryan, a professor at Michigan State University and one of the study’s authors. “We make a value judgment on which is more important, but in the long term, managers need to talk about caring about everyone’s work-life balance.”Read the whole story: The Washington Post More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Ada 9 Hal dari Penumpang Yang Tak Disukai Oleh Awak Kabin

first_img1. Menggunakan toilet saat boardingToilet di pesawat biasanya berada di bagian depan atau belakang pesawat. Tapi, sebagai penumpang baiknya gunakan pikiran Anda saat kapan yang tepat menggunakannya. “Saya ingin penumpang berhenti menggunakan toilet saat boarding. Ada kamar mandi besar di terminal yang bisa digunakan sambil menunggu dua jam sebelum penerbangan mereka di lakukan,” ujar Cherise Stacy salah seorang awak kabin Jet Blue.2. Memilih kantong muntah untuk sampahAwak kabin bukanlah asisten rumah tangga atau ibu Anda yang akan terus-terusan membersihkan kotoran Anda. “Saya ingin penumpang berhenti menggunakan kantong muntah sebagai tempat sampah pribadi. Ini untuk muntah!” Ujar Stacy.3. Mengajukan pertanyaaan tak layakDi setiap pesawat tepatnya di belakang kursi penumpang selalu ada kartu menu. “Ini seperti pergi ke restoran dan kapan pelayan datang dan seseorang bertanya apa yang mereka dapatkan jika belum pernah terbang sebelumnya. Berhentilah meminta susu cokelat, Coke dan cookies, atau hal lain yang memang tidak ditawarkan,” kata Stacy.4. Menggunakan meja untuk barang kotorSebagai penumpang, banyak hal yang bisa Anda lakukan di tempat duduk. Ini termasuk membaca, bermain game bahkan menonton tv. Membersihkan popok bayi? Memang tidak banyak yang menggunakan meja untuk mengganti popok bayi mereka. “Jika mengingat itu saya hanya akan muntah,” kata mantan seorang awak kabin Lisa Dinsmoor.5. Bau Tak Sedap dari PenumpangKabin pesawat bukanlah kamar Anda sendiri, tetapi ruang publik. Melepaskan sepatu pada penerbangan jarak jauh sangat memungkinkan dilakukan. Tapi jika Anda memiliki kaki yang bau ini akan menjadi permasalahan bagi penumpang lain dan awak kabin.“Suatu saat bekerja di kelas satu, saya harus membawa selimut ke seorang pria dan memintanya untuk membungkusnya di kakinya karena baunya sangat buruk,” kata Dinsmoor.6. Berharap awak kabin tahu isi kepala AndaJangan berharap awak kabin tahu keinginan Anda. Jadi baiknya beritahu apa yang Anda butuhkan sebelum mereka berjalan meninggalkan Anda.“Saya benci bertanya kepada seorang penumpang, apakah mereka mau minum kopi dan memberikannya kepada mereka. Kemudian mereka berteriak kepada Anda bahwa mereka menginginkan krim dan gula di dalamnya.” ujar Dinsmoor.7. Ruang sisa pada bagasi kompartemenSaat Anda mencoba memasukkan tas di kompartemen yang penuh, bukan di bawah kursi, awak kabin bukan tidak menghargainya tetapi mencoba untuk memberikan kepada pemilik untuk diletakkan dibawah. “Jika seseorang memiliki barang yang dipaksakan masuk ke kompartemen atas, tidak perlu khawatir karena saya akan bertanya itu barang milik siapa tanpa malu,” ujar Dinsmoor.8. Mengabaikan peringatanDalam suatu penerbangan, ada saja penumpang yang kerap mengabaikan peringatan, sebut saja tidak mengindahkan peringatan untuk mematikan ponsel sesaat sebelum take off. Lainnya upaya menolak menegakkan sandaran kursi sebelum landing atau saat cuaca buruk. Dalam kasus ini, beberapa awak kabin kerap bersitegang dengan penumpang yang keras kepala.Baca juga: Benarkah Penumpang Kelas Ekonomi Kurang Perhatian? Ini Kata Awak Kabin9. Bersikap kasar“Saya berharap penumpang berhenti bersikap kasar satu dengan yang lainnya. Ya, kursi sempit, tapi itu tidak memberi siapapun hak untuk membuat frustasi mereka pada orang lain,” kata Heather Poole, petugas penerbangan yang juga penulis New York Times.Poole berharap agar penumpang berhenti panik dan belajar bagaimana mengekspresikan keinginan dan kebutuhan mereka. “Saya mungkin akan sedikit lebih bersedia untuk melampui panggilan tugas jika mereka meneriaki saya terlebih dahulu. Saya berharap, lebih banyak penumpang akan mengenal saya dengan kontak mata, tolong dan terima kasih juga akan baik, saya juga berharap penumpang juga bisa mengingat saya juga orang, walaupun saya adalah awak kabin.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedInilah yang Diharapkan Seorang Awak Kabin dari Penumpang!22/01/2019In “Featured”Inilah 14 Tugas Awak Kabin Pesawat Yang Jarang Diketahui18/12/2017In “Bandara”Adakah Yang Berbeda Antara Pramugari dan Awak Kabin?21/06/2017In “Domestik” Sumber: weekly.ascii.jp Pemikiran Anda tentang pekerjaan awak kabin yang sangat mudah tentu saja keliru, pasalnya pekerjaan awak kabin udara  sejatinya penuh risiko dan menantang.
