Alcoholics Paid In Beer To Clean Streets

Here is an imaginative approach to anti social alcoholic behaviour, taken by Amsterdam authorities.

At nine o'clock in the morning in a garden shed behind a house in Amsterdam, a handful of alcoholics are getting ready to clean the surrounding streets, beer and cigarette in hand.

For a day's work, the men receive 10 euros, a half-packet of rolling tobacco and, most importantly, five cans of beer: two to start the day, two at lunch and one for after work.

Gerrie Holterman, who heads the Rainbow Foundation project, financed by the Dutch state and donations is quoted by Times Live:
"This group of chronic alcoholics was causing a nuisance in Amsterdam's Oosterpark: fights, noise, disagreeable comments to women.

The aim is to keep them occupied, to get them doing something so they no longer cause trouble at the park."
An interesting approach to alcoholic anti social behaviour.

  1. It won't work here. They wouldn't do the work and the booze would quickly become a 'human right'.

  2. And the elf'n'safety fascists wouldn't allow it!
