I can see this happening and I can even see how it happened.

Somewhere some overpaid person with either a psychology degree or a sociology degree (PhD I'm sure) decided they needed to improve the morale of the unemployed.

In their infinite wisdom ...


Yep, the "wisdom" of the experts.

Someone has to pay for all of those psychology degree grants...its a racket.

In the private sector, this is the kind of thing that could get you fired.


Ah, yes that private sector where business must be profitable to survive...and
when it survives it becomes taxable and regulated by the idots who create this kind of
atrocity.


This is a terrrific example of why people have no faith in the government. There are absolutely no consequences for failure to perform, incompetence, poor judgement. None.


Yep, thats the government for you. I am not sure what percentage exactly although its looking
like more and more "public service" jobs are the place where the unemployable land!

Let me get this straight.

They want to spend tax payer money to give out capes to the unemployed.

They want to spend money to drug test the unemployed (spending billions to save thousands).

And I thought California was the state of idiots? No offense my Cali friends.

ORLANDO, Fla. … WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA is inviting the area’s job
seekers and employers to join the fight against unemployment in Central
Florida with its new Cape-A-Bility Challenge. The Challenge, beginning April
11 and running through June 30, takes on WCF’s comic book villain, Dr.
Evil Unemployment, and offers job seekers and employers the opportunity
to win $1,000 prize packs.


This is messed up. There even giving away prize money. So I guess the $73,000 is only for a month or so of give aways. What happened to getting people jobs with the money?

I wonder what costume shoppe/designer had friends in the legislature who got this passed through?

Captilism, at it's finest.

If there is no bread let them play with capes!



Don't you mean Cape-italism?

Nice try....but this isn't a problem with capitalism at all. I know you want it to be, so your ignorant beliefs ate validated.......but this is a problem with government...plain and simple.

The inability to understand this clear fact and blame it on something you don't understand is sad.

Deny ignorance used to mean something around here......

Oh come on you guys, Florida tax payers are actually pretty lucky, In my state they probably would have spent 73 million dollars on capes....and then raise the tax on cigarettes or liquor to cover it

Is it just me, or does anyone else want to fly to Florida and bitch-slap the moron who came up with this idea?

Anyone? Anyone?

this is just gross incompitance, if they've got enough money to waste it, then they've got enough to lower taxes or at least hire some people to help the unemployed find work.

Thats too logical my dear.
You must learn to think the way they do...

Lowering taxes might make life to easy for those who work really hard...
Lower taxes might result in companies profit and new hires, then the agencies would not
have so much money to spend on FUBAR campaigns!

mhmm, And I just stumbled upon a new conspiracy, because I thought Workforce Central Florida was trying to defeat Dr Evil Unemployment, but as you can see here....they're working together.


Plus I wonder what the capes real purpose are?

You know Beez, if you keep up that attitude Dr Evil Unemployment is going to win. And you could start a whole rash of new unemployed, besides most people would want a cape over a job anyday. Don't give them any ideas.
