    I thought this was a great idea. Give a homeless person $20, a t-shirt and let them keep the donations. All they have to do is offer people wi-fi and ask them to make a donation.

    Leave it to the liberals to kill a good idea. Instead of some homeless people making a little bank, maybe even get a chance to pull themselves out of the downward spiral the libs jump in and now they get NOTHING.

    Oh and before you say 'Minimum Wage Law' I would think a tipped employee likely makes about the same per hour at the lower wage rate.

    I have to wonder what else we can turn homeless people into?? There has to be a joke somewhere in all of this.

    That's fucking hilarious.

    And fuck anyone who is against this. The homeless people had more money in their pocket as a result, and entered into the agreement willingly. No one loses.

    Is that what we call them now that we let them have jobs?

    Why is it automatically liberals? Plenty of other groups that might think this was exploitive.

    It's Austin, so the libs are probably the ones who thought it up in the first place.

    How is this any different from, say, a cocktail waitress roaming a convention handing out drinks?

    Cue Miley Cyrus picture.......

    Being homeless is more dignified.

    There is only one political ideology that considers voluntary employment arrangements exploitative: socialism. And in the US, socialism is called liberalism.

    Kind of like people who feel they are morally superior and must make decisions on behalf of the adults who agreed to provide this service for monetary compensation they desperately need.

    My buddy's company had some small thing to do with this and we were talking about it last night. Fuck the politics.

    I found it fascinating that their goal was more to encourage the homeless people to have more social interaction than to make them money. I still don't understand why, they're obviously going to lose money on the deal, but it's a cool program any way you look at it unless you're fucking stupid.

    Since we aren't going to lock the homeless up in loony bins like we should, we might as well get some use out of them. Soylent Green is still several years off.

    They better get to work on that. It was 81 degrees in Omaha today, the warmest day on record for March, EVER. If we don't get some rain soon, the only thing that will be growing in those fields will be dust devils.

    Only leftist politicians are allowed to exploit the "homeless"

    Religious conservatives think that way about the girls working in legal brothels in Nevada.

    No they don't. They oppose it for religious reasons, not because it's exploitative. Like I already explained, that argument is something socialists came up with.

    You're right. There's not one Democratic politician who wouldn't stand right up and proclaim loudly their support for legalized prostitution and drugs, not to mention profanity and nudity on TV. They're very courageous, that bunch.

    What's the religious argument? I thought Jesus slept with a whore? They say it's exploitative too.

    I don't know, sounds like one of those things a company needs to say to disguise the "crudity" of money.
