The Democratic Socialist answer to the question is not that complex.

First of course, there is PLENTY of work that needs to be done. The CBO states that there are 70,000 bridges and tunnels ready to collapse.

The rail infrastructure is that of the early 20th Century.

The cell phone onfrastructure and the electric grid are the worst in the developed world. And there is much else to be done.

So finding work would be rediculously easy.

Second, no Democratic government would FORCE anyone to work. On the other hand, if you are able to work, then you should either accept one of these jobs, OR get no benefits from society. Government welfare should only go to those unable for physical or mental reasons.

Society has an obligation to take care of those unable to support themselves. It has no obligation to support those who choose not to participate.

And of course, these new jobs MUST pay enough to keep those working out of poverty.
