8 hour minimum requirement
 

Regarding 12VAC30-120-920, Sections B. 2. a. (1) and B. 2. B. (1),

Please delete the eight-hour minimum employment per week for disregarding earned income. Having an eight hour minimum is arbitrary and unfair. Should not employment of any hours be encouraged as opposed to only 8 or better?  Why should a person who works less than 8 hours per week have earned income deducted when they have the same employment expenses as those who work 8-20 hours? The state of Virginia should respect and encourage those with disabilities who are attempting to be responsible citizens and contribute to society.
