Imagine going to work every day and not getting paid. Then, one day, you're told there's no work to do — so you must pay the company for the privilege of not working.

This is the daily reality facing Mrs. Kim, a petite 52-year-old North Korean. Her husband's job in a state-run steel factory requires him to build roads. She can't remember the last time he received a monthly salary. When there are no roads to build, he has to pay his company around 20 times his paltry monthly salary, she says.

"He had to pay not to work for about six months of last year," Mrs. Kim told NPR, sighing. "You have to pay, even if you can't afford to eat. It's mandatory."

Someone should introduce such a bill here, just to get a rise out of the FSA.

FSA would vote the politicians out of office. Need an armed populace to do that in North Korea.

They wouldn't do anything. The majority of those people are completely brainwashed. National Geographic did an "Inside NK" documentary not too long ago. It is eye opening. I think its on Netflix still.

If people aren't being paid wages when they are employed, where are they getting the funds from when they aren't?

I think there are probably some facts missing from that story.
The kind of facts that require math.

If done here it would be like the FSA's Little Bighorn.

This DISCOURAGES unemployment. Zero wants people on unemployment and depending on payments from the Democrats and federal government.
