Most homeless are homeless because they are either incapable of obtaining or keeping a job or simply don't want one. Most of the rest prefer being homeless.

The very few remaining are temporarily homeless and won't stay there long.

This sounds like a feelgood plan that will gain nothing but will cost big bucks.

Are these the 'shovel ready' jobs that Obama so fondly referred to while President?

Those no good vets... am i right?

Stand for the Anthem to "support the troops".. or else.
But don't WASTE "big bucks" trying to get vets or other Americans a jobs.
Vets prefer to be homeless.... and are incapable of obtaining or keeping a job.

For the ones who don't mind working, there is plenty of ground that is trashed, and it needs to be cleaned up. Money is money. No money is poop on your hand.

Off an on over the years I've done some painting and lawn maintenance work. and i've asked homeless and or panhandlers to come out on a job or 2 to work instead of get of hand out. most agree right away. A couple of them... half drunk... still tried to work.
But some folks are in fact mentally ill and some are aged and/or disabled physically (missing limbs, wheelchair bond) and can't really work much.
In my very limited experience with that, the able bodied panhandlers on the street who won't work aren't homeless.

I too have made such attempts to hire and help the Homeless and pan handlers. In general, I have seen the same results.

Give them jobs sounds so simple. The truth is, IT DOESN'T WORK OUT.

From reading some of the previous postings, one would think nobody had ever had this thought before. That conclusion would be wrong.

I find it curious that during the Obama years, when jobs were scarce, and in fact disappearing, we heard nothing about the "homeless." But now, when employers cannot fill open jobs in a expanding economy, the media sees the problem as rampant.

And projects the simple solution as, "just give them jobs."

Obama spent almost a Trillion dollars ( we didn't have) in an effort to "stimulate" the economy and fund those "shovel ready jobs." The program must have worked because the media couldn't seem to find any homeless folks on which to report.

Odd, because any person with a working brain knew they could be easily found in almost every major city run by progressive governments. The same said cities where many of these media organizations hold their headquarters.

How the hell did they miss this?
