The latest creative response to panhandling is to offer jobs.Maybe hire them as tax collectors...it's basically the same thing, isn't it?
Communities such as San Jose, California, and Chicago are trying innovative work programs for panhandlers, and publicity about a new work program in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is helping to spread the idea, Tars said.
“It is in line with the best evidence out there about taking a constructive, alternative approach rather than criminalizing homelessness,” Tars said.
While Albuquerque is nearly eight times the size of Portland – a population of nearly 545,852 compared to Portland’s nearly 67,000 residents – Portland City Manager Jon Jennings hopes to replicate some of the success of Albuquerque’s program.
