I do not understand why the "taxpayer" has to fund the unemployed that do not contribute to there community or country. Whilst living in Australia the government there had it all wrong until 10 years ago, when they finally put an end to wasted "taxpayers" contribution into the unemployed. This is how it worked:
If you were unemployed and receiving a benefit after being out of work for more than 6 months, a scheme was started for the unemployed to contribute 16 hours per fortnight back into the community, this could be in the way helping with the elderly, help keep the environment clear and clean of rubbish, help with the beautification of parks and gardens, the list is endless. This gives the unemployed a sense of worth and self esteem and able to communicate with others. Using this method the unemployed weren't branded as lazy and worthless they gave something back, this also enable them to obtain further skills and in a lot of cases gain paid work.
If the unemployed did not work the 16 hours a fortnight then their benefits are reduced. Of course there are the genuine unemployed who can never work again, then they should be placed on the disability pension, this allows a regular check up with a government supplied GP, and not forgotten by the system
