Homeless WiFi: Exploitation or Opportunity?

This is Jon Stewart's comment on the homeless being hired as WiFi hotspots

This is my comment on Jon Stewart's comment:

The toughest thing for any homeless person is to get hired in the first place. No one wants to give chronic homeless folks a chance. Yes, minimum wage would be better. Yes, it would be better if he was recognized as a person. But if the agenda is "Give the homeless all they deserve or give them nothing" guess what they get? The same thing they've gotten for 30 years-- nothing. How many homeless has Comedy Central hired? How many homeless have you hired, Jon?
