Well it kinda makes sense. It's more like the old "Give a man a fish..." thing. I don't like just giving money to people. I think that in order to get cash, you should be required to do something. There are a number of services that could use some volunteers. If the person is unemployed they could help them out. Obviously some times people need assistance even when they are working, but if they are working they could be exempted from teh requirement of helping with the volunteer services.
