I would still be giving them help, just the absolute minimum for them to survive. But if you aren't working you aren't contributing to society.

I don't mind my tax dollars going to help people get out of the bind they are in, just don't give them cash. And supply them with everything they will need to get back out and contribute to society. Offer free training programs and all that so they can be a productive member of society.

Eh, you're still narrowing the field of potential jobs, to be fair. It isn't an entirely fruitless or worthless point of focus.
The case against Clevinger was open and shut. The only thing missing was something to charge him with.

Their not pointless when they are part of the reason they are unemployable.


Again, there's no evidence that this is a factor. They never tested me for my current position, so it wouldn't have affected anything, as one example.


I need to give you evidence that someone being on drugs has a negative effect on their work ethic?

Again, since I think there are a list of things the government should help people with during this time I can apply it to others.

I'll use my city as an example Regina, Saskatchewan has a population of 230,000 to be on the safe side I'll just guess 200,000 or of working age. We have an unemployment rate at 3.4% and just one site that advertises job postings has 3066 jobs available. So realistically are unemployment rate should easily be under 3% if not 2%.

It may not be a job you want but, but it is a job. You can still continue to look for the job you want while you are working.

People abuse the system so give them the bare minimum to survive on that will give them more motivation to look.

How would these individuals get their transportation needs met? What about toilet paper and various hygiene products? Suitable clothing that isn't falling apart and suitable for interviews?

I feel a minimal amount of cash to afford public transportation and essential items is necessary.
Responsibility, respect, obligation, honor, the welfare of the community... all should adhere to these principles and apply them in all aspects of one's life.

I remember back when I used to think jobs just got handed to you and all you had to do was turn in the application, this delusion didn't last long. There was this program at my school where students would help keep things running and I helped out with the school library, I love books and enjoyed it greatly. Right around the time I graduated a low level position at the local library opened up and I was so excited because clearly that job was meant for me. So I went and put together a resume (never worked before, helped out at the school library and did some charity stuff) and went and got some recommendations from a couple of teachers and the librarian of the school library. As you can probably guess, I didn't get the job and was pretty heartbroken.

Then I went to college for awhile, got my 2 year degree and decided further education would be outside of my budget and resolved to get a job and get some work experience while waiting to turn 24 so I could get more favorable financial aid. It took me months to get hired, and only happened when I decided to 'unfairly' take advantage of my mother knowing some people and her asking one of her acquaintances to give me a job.


TLDR- A job being available doesn't mean you are going to get that job if you apply for it.

If you have to pick between being knowledgeable and knowing how to network with people, go with the latter. Far more opportunities open up to you if you know the right folks.

Hand out more resumes it may not be a job you want, hand out resumes to 200 places you are bound to get a job somewhere. Who knows you might even enjoy said job that you find and stay.

My job as an Electrician, was just going to be a job till I could afford university, turned out I really liked the job and continued that as my career path. If you limit your options you may have trouble finding a job. If you keep it open it is really not that hard to find a job

It would affect their work ethic if they were on drugs while at work. There's the key.

No...no it actually isn't.

Drugs have more effects on an individual impairment.
