    That is not true. Many people are forced into labor. Also please read the whole post.

    None of those are even somewhat good options.

    Unemployment benefits? I am not sure what you are talking about. Did you hit reply to the wrong post? Your responses dont seem to be in response to anything I wrote.

    paying people to sit home for 2 damn years is not forcing labor on anyone

    Thanks...I believe in trying to find laughter in any situation...so long as it is not at someone else's expense.

    Nobody is forced into a specific occupation. If they want to do a specific type of work, then they need to go to a school which facilitates their doing so. They can own their own business, or sell vegetables on the side of the road- whatever works for them. Working is how many of us survive. You work for pay, then you pay your way. Cutting someone off from government bennies is not forcing them into labor. It's the real world.
