Happy Veteran’s Day: 40% of NYC Vets Need Food Assistance

Just the sort of headline you’d expect four years into an economic recovery. Well at least we bailed out the TBTF banks and saved Wall Street bonuses!

From CBS:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Veterans are returning to New York City from their service only to be faced with going hungry, the head a city food bank said.

“On this Veterans Day, when we’re waving our flags — I need every New Yorker to know — 40 percent of New York City veterans are relying on soup kitchens and pantries,” Purvis said.

That amounts to 95,000 people.

“That is not a guesstimate; that is a fact,” she said.

Thanks for your service guys, now here take this EBT card. With any luck you’ll get a part time job in year 10 of the recovery.
