We can start by requiring that anyone who is physically able to work either:
1) be employed
2) seeking employment
3) going to school to train for employment
4) accept any job that is offered (they can seek a more desired job while they are working)
Had ancillary health care jobs ..went on my own mostly to learn how to do them better ..
Had to quit the first ..where I was pulling places at a time ..as it sometime s required hauling a,heavy machine around the hospital ..And I got injured ..still worked ..got some schooling in assisting .
Worked continuously ..
Total aid ..a month of food stamps after I was hospitalized .
Managed to raise my child ..parents helped till they both died ..rest was on my own..no child support .
She has gone on to do better than I did ..2 degrees ..post grad .
That was the way things were ..You raised your kids best you COULD
To be better off than you were.
