I was thinking about those that are on public assistance / welfare. There is what I think is a wide misconception that there are a majority of PA families that live this way (as if they pass it from one generation to the next). I am sure that there are some families like this, but surely not the majority.
My question is, how can we provide opportunity for these individuals to re-enter or be introduced to the workforce? In other words, should we expect people who recieve PA to return the favor in some way, shape, or form? If we expect for our children to understand that nothing is for free, shouldn't we lead by example? *please note, I didn't start this to get bashed, I would like serious discussion / debate on how to help the situation*

A poster on a different question brought up that there will be nowhere to place the people who are on assistance, with unemployment being what it is.
Since Obushma signed the GIVE Act, I don't see why he couldn't have written and sign a GIVE BACK Act. I don't know what sort of jobs they could do, but maybe some of those volunteer jobs he was talking about would be good to start with.

I like the first anons answer, but I won't pick an anon answer as best answer. It's a little rule of mine.
