California already (before 2008) had in place training for free. Some people used it, a lot didn't. You can't give everyone a job because not everyone is capable of working. There are ways for those people to be valuable members of a community but not necessarily earn income. Maybe a system of volunteer work that is a form of job training or allows networking that gives job access. There are still places that do apprenticeships, they aren't mainstream positions, but they could be.

A GOOD incentive, however, would be to generously (key word, generously, ie. it's not a human right) offer technical training to those without skills. Plumbing skills, electrician skills, these sorts of things. If they fail to succeed, tough luck. You were given a chance. If they do succeed, you're welcome. You can't force people to succeed. Keynesians are obsessed with control.

You can't have your cake and eat it.
That's a weird point to go after me for. It doesn't matter if you put have or eat in first or second position, meaning is still same, but most common usage has have being fist.

You casually brush off the article's suggestion of violent ex-cons or people with no skills actually staffing daycare centers. Who would willingly put their children in those creepy daycare centers?

"Infrastructure problems" is a classic strawman that is set up by Keynesians. They use it to justify more spending, but when they finally get the money it is never used for those infrastructure projects. Evidence: Obama's stimulus.

People respond to incentives, and usually not in ways you intend. Guaranteed employment is a bad incentive. That's basic economics.

Even if something like this didn't meet expectations and our day care centers end up run by violent ex-felons, it's still a right step to create jobs and possibly fix some of our infrastructure problems.
Also, the correct meaning of the term would be "eat your cake and have it too". Just sayin.

You want zero unemployment?
Put half the country in prison and the other half working for the prison system.

We're almost there anyway.

in the old days, the ussr used to state that a job was a human right.. but well, they were communist, now they are capitalistic.

but.. jobs and on the job training may be a way to go for the longtime unemployed that want to work.

"Monday on the Business Desk, Boston Private Industry Council head Neil Sullivan explained how America pales in comparison to European countries that set up their young people with jobs through the education system."

False.

Also, "staffing high quality day care". Are you really going to put your child in a day care staffed by college drop outs who wouldn't get a job until the government plopped one right on their lap?

This is all a dream. And believe it or not, it has been tried before. Just because you think everyone is ambitious and hardworking doesn't mean they are. That said, it would be interesting to do this and watch people still fall between the cracks despite them thinking it was full proof. No, you can't have your cake and eat it too.
