Reverse Work for the Dole

Many people hate the work for the dole scheme, and for many good reasons. But maybe the concept can be turned on its head, to benefit the unemployed?

What if there was a voluntary organisation, of unemployed people, who because they have some time on their hands, help out in the local community?

  • Self-organised, and therefore learning how to organise
  • Respected for their can-do attitude
  • Looks great on a resume – the opposite of a dole bludger
  • Develop skills

If successful, it could become a legitimate to satisfy mutual obligation requirements.
