The Problem:
Homelessness

The Social Invention:
Some people just aren't equipped to survive in the capitalist world. What if the government set up communes where food and shelter were provided, but the pay for working was considerably lower than minimum wage?

If you chose to live in such a commune, going to work would not be optional. If you don't go, you're not fired, you go to jail. If you call in sick, a doctor actually comes to your door and checks you out to see if you're lying.

It would serve as a springboard for people who have suffered financial ruin and lost their homes by missing rent/mortgage payments, so they can start over.
