I have to revise my stance a little. An able person should work, be actively (with proof) looking for a job, or be a student. There are jobs out there. There are ways to improve one's skills to get a job. It may not be in one's ideal field or it might be in a different field than used to or educated in. One might even have to move I understand if people come into hard times. But people need to buckle down and take a hard look at how they live while times are good and know that things can surely change. I realize people can come from backgrounds which create greater challenges, but I can tell you from my own experiences (from myself and from thousands of others when I worked) that people need to get out of the pity party and be tougher. People have opportunities here ----STILL.
