i was thinking, there are lots of people who get stuck on the dole. so what about making them work for the dole. kind of work experience and community service stuff, 9-5 a couple of days a week, helping out in old age homes and working with the environment. they'd get new skills and references, and wouldn't forget about the work environment. And it would act as a disincentive to free loaders. what does everyone think?

Its a good idea in practise but in reality it may not work out. You can't force people to work for free and there simply isn't enough paid jobs to go round. I think they should make it a condition that if you're on the dole you should have to do some cummunity service. Stuff like painting, removing grafiti etc.
