I hope my sarcasm was evident. I was more commenting on how conservatives have a theory that people who need assistance of any kind should have to work to get it. They've been trying it for years. Here is MI, which is a state that is getting stupider by the year, they recently put in a welfare work requirement that specifically exempts people from rural areas (not sure why a bunch of conservatives would make a work requirement for urban but not rural poor people--real head scratcher). Combining of Labor and Education seems like a step toward fulfilling work requirements for everything.
