Amsterdam Alcoholics Initiative Pays in Beers for Work

A controversial project in Amsterdam gets major global news coverage today. A government funded project pays a group of Alcoholics in beers for cleaning the streets.

Here is an odd sounding story that is trending today. An initiative in Amsterdam got a group of alcoholics off the streets by paying them in beers for cleaning the streets. For a day of work they receive 5 cans of beer, 10 Euro, a half pouch of rolling tobacco and get a hot lunch.

The project organizer says according to an article on the Daily Mail, that they started the project to get the group out of a park where they caused trouble. Now they have something to do during the day. What sounds weird at first makes sense when compared to the heroin clinics in the Netherlands. Addicts can receive drugs there for free.

While this project is interesting, it should be paired with a therapy. What do you think about this? Good or bad?
