There is a solution, and one that could resolve unemployment issues for many. That solution is proliferation of substitute agencies for all industries or professions, and all shifts.
Full-Time Substitute Positions
Typically substitute positions are part-time or as needed. Substitute positions can be full-time, however, and should be an available option in every capacity. A full-time substitute would be required to work each and every day that an assignment is available up to 40 hours per week, and would be privileged to the same benefits as any other full-time employee.
Actually an initiative of the sort could employ every unemployed individual who is capable of working, and render all employers the satisfaction and option of trying employees before permanently hiring them and vice versa.
