All welfare people not on disability should be out there one day/week cleaning the roadways. Trouble is, it is a hazard. Only our prisoners of crime can get out of jail for a few hours to do that kind of work.

I've been saying that for years! If people had to work for their welfare, maybe they would get motivated to get real jobs.

And quite a few of those on welfare have a job that is paying less than what it takes to live on. Some even have 2 jobs. And don't forget most have kids. So where are they going to find time to do that?
And as the states that are making drug testing manditory, they are finding out that those on welfare are actually LESS likely to be on drugs than those not on welfare.

North Carolina uses prison labor all the time for roadside clean up. Unfortunately, it is not long before the side of the road looks like the local dump again. People just don't care anymore. I do notice the states that have the returnable bottles are not as trashy. Alot of people will take their cans and bottles back to the store for their deposit back or people will pick up the cans and bottles on the roadside to make .05 cents. You will be surprised how fast they add up.

Please do see in my original post the word "capable."

In your scenario they would not be capable. Sort of an easy application, eh?

I watched an interview on television where the reporter asked a welfare recipient, full body able person, if they had ever worked. The reply was, and I quote, "I tried it once but I didn't like it so I went back on welfare."

So just why would that "capable" person not be in a program to provide some form of community work for their welfare check.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Here in SC (We too have some road trash issues) we do have prisoners out picking up trash along the hiways. From what I understand most of the prisoners ask to do it as it gets them out of the prison for a little while.

I agree with Wayne in that if you are receiving money from the gov't (AKA my money) and you are physically capable you should do some form of work for it. Long term unemployment assistance should have a job (re)training aspect as well as a requirement to perform some form of community service.

Do you have facts to support that statement or is it just an opinion. If you have facts.....less state them.
