Work for all

• We live in exceptional times and require exceptional and brave solutions to solve the crisis we are in. We have more than 400,000 people on social welfare, of whom the majority would love to work and contribute to society.

Yet they are paid one of the highest rates of social welfare in the world with no return to society on this payment.

At the same time, we have countless problems, such as the inability to pay for elderly patients to be in nursing homes. No able person should get the dole for nothing. Train these people to do things, such as looking after the elderly at home.
