The reason why people are using so many food stamps is because their salary doesn't cut it.
If they get minimum wage most of their salary will go towards paying the rent and utilities.
The minimum wage also sets the bar to how much other higher skilled employees should be paid.
If people really want to decrease the number of food stamp recipients then the minimum wage should be increased to a level that reflects inflation.
