Give them some tools and send them home to work on their own houses.
Can't do that!! The families would sue the tool manufacturers and anyone in sight and blow it on twinkies and lottery tickets!! Then they would get gov. money for being overweight, stupid, drunks, and unemployable.
Lest you think I jest, I went to school with 2 brothers that got disability checks in their 30's. One got a stupid pension and the other got a drunk pension. At least the drunk drank himself to death and the dumb one being not so dumb, moved to Campabello Island (Canada) where his free check went further.
