Now this is a good example of putting the right people in the right job, in my opinion.
I feel that doing something like this is a good example of making the very best of the talents of others. According to the coordinator, the people involved had many things going for them. Makes good sense to me.
In 2006, the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia began hiring prostitutes as nursing home caregivers. In an attempt to get sex trade workers off the streets and into the widely understaffed nursing home industry, they offered dozens of prostitutes the chance to train for a new career. The program coordinator said the use of prostitutes was ‘an obvious move,’ because they have ‘good people skills, aren’t easily disgusted, and have zero fear of physical contact.’
All I can say is BRAVO to the folks that tried out this program. We could use more innovative thinking along these lines.
Coffee outside again today. Soon it will be too hot to do this on the patio, shade or not.
