Hey, it’s probably more efficient, more fair, and less corrupt than Obama’s “jobs bills”.

(Not of course that that’s sayin’ much.)

This guy is really dumb.

The $40,000 should be just dispensable income, and he's forgetting that people also need housing and food and clothing and transportation and entertainment. So, he needs to make sure that people live for free and have no worries at all in their lives.

Since it would be government fake jobs, why not make those salaries even higher? And, while it's all "free" money, why not give them all a free Chevy Volt from Government Motors? And, make them all unionized, where they could all fight to make sure that those $40,000 jobs are for life, and with a guaranteed 5% per year increase? With that kind of incentive, it would be an incentive for all Americans to become unemployed in order to land those cushy government jobs. Who cares if the economy stops producing when everybody becomes a government employee. All that's needed is a printing facility to print money, and, Voila!, everybody lives in Utopia.

And, hey, we would become even more attractive for illegals, and, they could take over the jobs that some Americans would refuse to do for a mere $40,000.

Of course private business people would not be eligible for any of this funding. They are the source, through taxation, of all the money the gov spends. When you consider the impact of these hundreds of billions on a economy of 12 trillion it is less than a drop in a very large bucket. The only way the gov can support its underclass is by nationalizing all industry and corporate business.
Russia went bankrupt over such practices. China is relinquishing its grasp on business. Wherever the scheme has been tried it has failed. Of course we are the biggest and the best. It is bound to work here.

Hire them to do what? Would they be required to actually show up in order to get paid? What would the penalty be, for example, if they were chronically absent from work? What if they under-performed? Would there even be performance reviews on a quarterly/annual basis, or would these be no-show or idle-time type “jobs”?

Other posters have already mentioned, some welfare recipients would opt out and keep their current deal, because an income of $40K would be a cut for them. Would there be an option for them to do this, or would the current welfare be replaced by this new hire-every-unemployed-citizen plan?

I’d actually like to hear more from Mr Jackson Jr about his “everybody rides” proposal and vision.

Ideally, he could also have his Dad appear with him, to convert the proposal into catchy rhymes, which would more likely be understood by the potential “hires”.
