George_Washington said:I think we should make every effort in America to help people who are homeless find jobs. What do you guys think?
A few years ago, when I owned my own business, I experimented with the hiring of homeless people. They all quit within a few days, most of them stole from me and a couple of them stole from my other employees as well.
While yours is a noble idea, the hard truth is that a large portion of the homeless population are substance abusers, mentally ill, sociopaths, or suffer from a combination of these. Hardly employable material.
The only way to get these people off the streets is to institutionalize them....which doesn't sit very well with the ACLU.
