Fake Food Stamp Union Parody Article is Fake


Douglas Kellogg
August 27, 2013

Only in the Internet era…

A parody article is making the rounds online, and apparently causing quite a bit of confusion. The article outlines a fictitious situation where food stamp recipients can supposedly unionize.

National Taxpayers Union had nothing to do with the creation of the article, and no knowledge of it.

It has fooled enough people out there that it required clarification. Back to your regularly scheduled programming…

Fake article? Properly, prior to study an article we will need to get positive thinking but not easy to believe it. What we read maybe a joke or a hoax. Auto Body Seattle
