Meet the ones who show up and high-five them for caring about the poor.

Department of Workforce Services Public Hearing
Tuesday, June 8
The Utah Department of Workforce Services is seeking comment on a proposed rule reducing benefits for families that include individuals who can’t or won’t provide immigration documents. Is this rule sticking up for the taxpayers, or is it just taking food out of the mouths of families in a vulnerable population? If you’ve got an opinion one way or the other, let your voice be heard.
Department of Workforce Services, 1385 S. State, June 8, 5-6 p.m. email@example.com
