An Unemployment Idea I Like

A wicked smart economist puts out an idea similar to my "what do we do about the unemployment extensions" post.

"Require all unemployed drawing benefits to sign up for unpaid work at a non-profit, church, temple, city agencies desperate for volunteers, etc."

I agree. If the government is going to extend benefits out to 99 or more weeks, might as well get some return on it.
