    Collecting unemployment, getting food stamps ???

    30 hours of labor/community service should be the price.........Picking up litter, working on infrastructure, shoveling shit..........doesnt matter

    No kidding....Obama should have them building roads, we wouldnt have to spend anymore than we do now.....how awesome would THAT be...so we'd basically have no labor cost on roads (over what they get in benefits)

    I believe it has been tried before but was stopped when union workers complained about them taking their jobs.

    the media didn't report this:

    'This afternoon, President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released an official policy directive undermining the welfare reform law of 1996. The new policy guts the federal work requirements that have been the foundation of that law — one of the most successful domestic policy reforms in the 20th century.'

    Unions brought you the middle class. And without them we will soon be back to oligarchs, if we are not already there!

    The Welfare Reform Act requires recipients to work at least 20 hrs per week in order to receive a benefit.

    This isn't something new. It's been law for well over a decade. Please make a note of it.
