I’ve been debating the work for dole idea with friends and on twitter over the last few days. Personally I think if set up correctly it ‘could’ work. Here’s how:
This programme could give people a reason to get out of bed and hopefully a sense of a achievement by being back at work again. It also alleviates the two things which I personally would hate about being on the dole. 1. Boredom. 2. The humiliation of the dole office.
My own close family members have been touched by unemployment over the years and I have personally seen what it can do to an individual.
