In all honesty I think that people on unemployment should have to do some work helping the city in someway. This could potentially save money on city expenses as well as supply benefits for the unemployed. Even though a majority of people use unemployment for legitimate reasons, I cannot deny that some people, a small percent, do take advantage of the system. I think requiring some levels of community service would benefit the community as well as the unemployed and it does away with the oppressor's ability to call the unemployed "freeloaders." It's a win for the cities that have high levels of unemployment and it's a win for the unemployed who require extended benefits due to a shitty job market.
