America now a food stamp nation

Tashawna Green, 21, helps her daughter Taishaun, 6, down from the washing machine after posing for a portrait at her home in Queens Village, New York August 21, 2011. Green who up until recently worked 25 hours a week at Target, is on food stamps and says a good number of her colleagues are too. Green made $8.08 cents an hour working for Target. "It's a good thing that the government helps, but if employers paid enough and gave enough hours, then we wouldn't need to be on food stamps." (REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi)
