I don't think that all of the unemployed people would be particularly unhappy about getting a job. If people who wanted to start up a business were allowed to let it grow by any means possible--including having "the rich" buy their stock, etc., then jobs would be created. Given the opportunity, a few of those businesses would become sufficiently large to provide a considerable number of jobs. Entrepreneurs take a risk, but if you throw Ping-Pong balls at a wall with a hole in it, some will go through, and we should try to make that hole as big as possible.
I know a lot of poorer people who have good skills and excellent work ethic, which is wasted when they go to work as a Hy-Vee cashier instead of participating in a growing business--or end up not working at all.
Has anyone here considered that the jobless would be in better health if they were working for the pay they get? If they got out, worked a little, even stocking shelves, then they'd be better off health-wise.
