According to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau, people participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012:
In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau's report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.More here ...
For each woman who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, there was slightly more than 1 other person collecting food stamps.
[...] So far, 2011 and 2012 are the only back-to-back years on record when the number of Americans taking food stamps outnumbered the women working full-time year-round.
Meanwhile, the female share of the federal workforce has been declining under Obama. And let's not forget that Obama's focus on the so-called gender pay gap (it does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure, or hours worked per week) this past week turned out to be an embarrassment when it was revealed that women who work at the White House earn 88 cents on the dollar as compared to men, i.e., 12 percent less than their male counterparts.
