Why do unemployed people get money?

Its like giving a child pocket money(including single mums with kids in school). Surely vouchers for basic living should be given instead . The long term, voluntary unemployed should have exercise bikes placed in their homes, connected to the national grid. Once they have generated enough power through cycling, then they have the right to live and sleep in their house. Great for the environment as well. Thousands of people actually giving something back to society apart from continually taking.

The unemployment benefit should be a short term help for people in need while looking for a new job. It should not be misused for a tax payer paid long holiday, as many professional unemployed do it.

What about those who have a disability but can't get SS yet. SS is a long process. They need some kind of income.
