The funding for a program that creates jobs for senior citizens is at risk.
Well, duh. In a sensible economy, programs don’t create jobs; improving resources does. But this program, although not market-supported, is for a special interest group. The Senior Community Service Employment Program has been cut from “like 850 million to $320.” What the jobs do, besides generating wages, is not stated in the brief published online by the Smoky Mountain Times.
