People can\'t be forced to do work. We could call it a draft and pay them nothing like we used to pay the military, but that won\'t work because workers have rights.

The private sector should do the hiring for the jobs and they should get the federal money for these programs. They are cheaper and can pay someone what the government charges to run the program. The volunteer workers are payed poverty wages with promises of education while the government charges tens of thousands for each \'volunteer\' worker. This is why these program exist, for the federal employees. They are paid 40-90,000 to administer.

The workers should be paid the median income.
