Should the government guarantee you a job?

There's talk among lawmakers right now about beginning a program that would guarantee a job to anyone who wants one in order to help unemployed workers start earning again.

There are still many aspects of this plan to consider, but what do you think?

Read the article I linked on this idea to stimulate job growth and let us know what your thoughts are!

I think it would be great if they paid you as if you was working for the government.but although this is far fetched,government jobs arent.you need basic to masters degrees to work some government jobs.if they do deside to go about this hopefully pay would help both ways.for us and them.

It is particularly a good idea as it should eliminate racism, ageism, sexism at the interview. Make corporations earn their tax breaks.

No one said that gov will pay for doing nothing and with a government pay rate. It says they will provide a job that is available - just like in good socialism USSR - no freebees. :) Not sure how that can happen when small businesses can't survive.

I think there's a misunderstanding maybe they just need to put a little clause if they want to maintain that person in that position if there's a pandemic if there's a natural disaster if there is war whatever it is and if that person would be possibly not doing the job and getting paid or on a standby mode but still getting paid. It's time guys to start manufacturing can openers. And it's apparent that the president doesn't understand the concept do not stand up in the boat if someone stands up in the boat what happens everybody else is going to shift their way to certain direction to keep the thing balanced so don't fall down. So he put your car box on that oil pipeline thingy and guess what well you know what's up 30 cents in couple days it might get worse than that it's not the time to take that much concern plus the loss of jobs also revenue a phase out would have been cool not now after the pandemic because what's going to happen inflation so we get inflation what are we going to do lower interest rates it's not going to happen we're going to wind up getting the old oh well no inflations wouldn't like crazy it just rates are going to have to move up the stock market's crashing press the fuels going up everything's going up oh yeah and we got to raise taxes.I left at the government because they have these financial people that say yes stimulus would be good for blah blah blah now definitely for certain reasons stimulus is good keeps you off the streets keeps you from spreading the virus at deadly disease prevents you from getting it and making matters worse. But always financial people all they care about is the stock market and how it's going to impact you know whether the numbers are true or not it looks like it's going to go up and up up and then crash you should have been heavy and gold by now anyway I don't know what the stock market is doing but unemployment is up so the stock market should be showing positive reflection to that but for some reason it's not sifting through the sifter anyway. I offer you something completely different teach your children about how to escape if the house is on fire and full of smoke stay down crawl the good areas at the bottom the bad air is at the top. And for any babysitters what not shaking baby syndrome yes up to the age of four I wouldn't even do it at the age of five but but it's a five of the brain is snugged up against the skull so but anyway shaking baby syndrome pass that along and one more is preventing crib death. Okay here's the last one do not let your ego be your undoing. If you truly love yourself nothing will hurt you no feelings emotions someone else's actions of course if they hit you with something but you would be coming on Disturbed object which is the first world of street fighting do not get into one that will surely save today so you're on the road and somebody's yelling at you or you you decide somebody else don't do it life is very flimsy they may have a gun and shoot you because they don't love themselves and once they're done shooting you they're going to shoot themselves. Stay alert situational awareness observe what's going on evade avoid escape when it all possible. Please I'm in and I'm not asking you to love one of them I'm just saying if someone's tripping offline they ask you a question you answered monotone in volume in agreement with whatever and then get out God bless

Every capable US citizen between the ages of 18-35 should be required to serve 24 months of national service, be it military or civilian. They could learn a trade while getting paid, and who knows, maybe it would make a difference in their lives.

Thats like saying i van sign a 2 year contract with Verizon. When you sign a contract you garantee you're going to fulfill that contract what if your boss fires you I mean there are other things I could happen but you can't guarantee your income that means you can't guarantee a contract so these contracts are unlawful. A government's job is only a secure as well obviously you don't screw up and the money that funds that job for the year after that they may decide to not fund that job so what are we guaranteeing here or guaranteeing that there's no guarantee
