Question by Julius W: Job Conscription???………………?
I know the U.S. Government says it wouldn’t reinstate wartime conscription unless its really needed, but with the high unemployment rates couldn’t it be possible to “conscript” people to fill certain jobs.
Couldn’t the government to come up with major job creating projects or see what critical professions the country is lacking in (doctors, engineers, teachers, chemist, etc.) and create/ fill job spots with laid off workers.
i’m sure if they revitalized a impoverished city like detroit and bring back the auto plants, they could find many people who got laid off in other parts of the country.
Many people don’t want to get drafted into the military, but if they knew they were going to get a well paying job i’m sure many people wouldn’t mind getting their number called.
The government spends millions and even billions on drafting people for military service, why couldn’t they spend that much money on revitalizing the economy and stimulating job growth throughout the country.
– just an idea
Answer by BRIAN
Conscription is a liberty violation. It’s authorized when the republic is at risk. You can’t take people’s liberty away and force them into labor to get the economy going.
