The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants to put welfare and unemployment check receivers to work cleaning the subway.
New York — The cash-strapped MTA may soon put welfare recipients to work scrubbing and cleaning the subways.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants to revive its participation in the city’s Work Experience Program — which makes the unemployed toil for their benefit checks.

“This is a program that has a proven track record of doing three things: providing low-cost cleaning help for the subway; providing job training to people who need it, and leading directly to full-time employment for many of the people who participate in the program,” MTA spokesman Jeremy Soffin said.

The unions will never allow this.
