Tired of Paying for It!
I keep hearing the above but yet everyone's solution is to throw people out on the street, cut them, make them get a job (you checked the help wanted section lately?),.... So, on Sunday I'm reading the Wisconsin State Journal about the State Parks. The point of the article was that they are under funded and they have used volunteers to their limit. Right around 25% of the park positions are unfilled. Guess what there is a ready workforce available already collecting a State check. The people on welfare the same people who others are tired of paying for. The original Welfare system under FDR required work if able. I say let's go back to that philosophy. There are jobs in the public sector that we are not going to hire so someone will not be displaced. Put them to work in the parks and anywhere else where we need additional employees.
