Should Social Services work with local businesses and try placing welfare recipients with jobs?

A quick phone call to many fast food restaurants or nursing homes could place many of the people with jobs. I know for a fact having worked in the health care field that the turn over rate for Nurse Assistants are high. These jobs are ALWAYS available. The question is, do they really want to work? It only takes a short time to become certified. Most people I know are finished in 2 weeks and put to work.

Yes, that is a good idea. Make them work for their money. I don't understand why the government does not put them to do community service and use those welfare recipients as "volunteers" whenever they are needed. To pick up trash, etc, etc.

Yes - a life on welfare should not be a career choice!

This is already a requirement for cash assistance, but many know the loopholes. Plus, cash assistance is really low unless you have a bunch of kids. It's easier to do without it than actually work.

Why does social services have to make the phone calls? These folks know how to use a phone. That's the problem-everyone needs the government to "help" them. Cold calling is not rocket science.
