I personally think the employers should get a tax when they have employees who they do not pay a decent wage. And the minimum wage is not the answer. So many businesses have 50 workers who they give 2-6 hrs a day when they really only need 20 full time workers. The way it is now the CEOs are supplemented by welfare. The gov is paying for the workers wage so the CEO gets millions in bonuses. Disgraceful.
But back to the safety net, work/school should be a requirement just as was passed by Pres Clinton in the 1990s.
