As it allows unemployed the ability to TRY something new without having to risk their future for it.
Your magically appearing new jobs isn´t going to happen without something like this.
Tenshinai is completely correct here. What happened in those experiments was that people started to reprioritize their time, spending more of it with family and being social and less working (while not actually losing much, if anything, in terms of productiveness). The Weberian vision of the Dolist sitting at home all day, hopped on drugs and watching TV, didn't come to pass at all, instead people felt more secure to do things that aren't immediately relevant to their survival and being happier as a result.
However that was explained away that the Legislaturalists actually encouraged that lazy, drugged up lazy lifestyle.
Your average dole is designed to allow one to live, maybe not comfortably, but to buy the necessities. But minimum wage is usually also higher, so if you work a 40 hour/week, you make more in 2 weeks than a dolist makes in a month.
Now flip that situation, so the dolists make twice as much as you would on minimum wage, how many people do you know would keep slaving away 40 to 60 hour weeks, when they know Joe in the apartment next door makes twice as much as they do for sitting around, binging on television and getting drunk/high?
