I think we need to get people back to work, and providing for their own families.
When given the chance,I think most people want to be self sufficient.
Well, that's what they say anyway.
I have lots of ideas of how this can happen, but for this conversation, lets just take it at face value.
All single parents with one child will be required to work for basic wage, but it is more than they receive on welfare. They will need to work in a factory and move into a purposly built apartment complex, close by.
Affordable childcare is available onsite, 24/7.
If they quit or get fired they must move, and will not be provided with welfare. If they are disruptive tenants, they must move, leave their job, and not qualify for welfare.
They can leave anytime they want to take a better paying job, have family and friends take care of them, or do nothing..they just won't be on welfare.
How many on welfare would take this opportunity?
Why or why not?
