back in the 70’s before Ameritec was, it was call Michigan Bell. Hubby was a foreman of a crew of splicers and the company decided to help out the chronic unemployed..They hired a bunch of them. They would show up if they felt like it, leave when they wanted to and on more than I occasions the foremen were ordered to check out their homes to see if they were OK....The chronic unemployed (read Holders people) are that was because its their way of life...At the end of the year 1 remained in the garage, the rest went back to being the poor unemployed. I am not talking about those that want a job and cannot find one today. A certain % of unemployed choose to be that way... Work interferes with their lifestyle....

Back in the ‘90s I worked in Macon, GA and talked with a small manufacturer there. The state, or Feds, had come up with a scheme to give the “jobless” a job via extra payments to business owners for each person hired. The guy tried it out and said so many were pist off that they had to work, they sabotaged his equipment in order to get laid off. Cost him thousands of dollars to repair. That was the last time he took ‘advantage” of any government brainstorm.
