High unemployment makes capitalism ugly. That is why government is needed in cases regarding human rights. Capitalism left unchecked will destroy a country and take it to the brink of anarchy. Seriously. Great point and I appreciate your thoughtful well written question.

Most of this is probably spelled out in detail due to legal counsel. I bet you they have many applicants to choose from. Supply and demand.

Who wants to work when the government will just give you a free ride?

Sounds good but, the commute from Dallas every morning would kill me.

What's wrong with this? Isn't this what they do? If you don't like this, imagine what i****************s do for much less money. Same job description, except replace every third noun with the word "toilet." Meanwhile we fret over whether they might somehow get to see a doctor for free.

Not sure what you think is absurd about it. Job = Company paying a person for their time to perform some duties for them. A job is a job. You don't have to apply for the job if you don't like it.
