Suppose we had a [unemployment benefits] system that says to people: “Look, whatever job you find, we’re going to provide a benefit that ensures you will get wages to match your last job.” We’ll do that for three months, five months, six months. Now, to somebody who’s worried about wage loss, it’s easier for them to say, “Great. I’ll take this job and that will at least give me full replacement, much higher than what I’m getting unemployed.” … And people may tell themselves: “I’ll start looking for another job while I’m in that job.” If they find a better job, great! If they don’t, well at least we’ve now moved them into a job rather than continued unemployment.

Sometimes the poor are praised for being thrifty. But to recommend thrift to the poor is both grotesque and insulting. It is like advising a man who is starving to eat less. For a town or country labourer to practise thrift would be absolutely immoral. Man should not be ready to show that he can live like a badly-fed animal. He should decline to live like that, and should either steal or go on the rates, which is considered by many to be a form of stealing.
