This idea would do two very important things:
A) Allow those who have the goodness of heart to be able to pursue a life doing community service and/or registered voluntary/charity work. It would reward this constructive work where much help is needed but people cannot afford to do it.
B) It would encourage (and force) those who cannot find regular employment or who choose to opt out from society to find passion in helping others instead of sitting around. They would be paying back to the community the cost of their benefits and this might alleviate the national resentment towards the unemployed.
