Why aren't welfare recipients required to perform some kind of community service to earn their wages?
I mean if they're healthy, able-bodied people we could certainly find something useful for them to do. They could pick up trash and push a broom on the city streets 40 hours a week, right? They could clean up and beautify parks and other public places. It would give them something constructive and beneficial to do and then taxpayers would at least get SOMETHING in return for their tax money. Why don't legislators make this a requirement?
