I think not. I have a nephew with autism is 22 and living in a group home who is struggling to make ends meet and his food stamps just got cut from 175$ a month to 125$ a month. He volunteers around town a lot. He cannot earn any money without losing his aid. He and other poor people need this money more than students who have opportunities to work part time. I worked as a student and it was good for me to learn how to balance work, study and play. I feel like I contributed while I received financial aid.
