Literate unemployed people make ends meet by making audiobooks, reading from newspapers, textbooks, technical reports, wiki articles etc.

Ad hoc studios can be set up at a local center (or from home) and quality of .mp3's can determined by other internet-based employees prior to payment.

This can be state funded or companies can donate to fund this.

Or the people who use it could pay for it. Sound enough scheme otherwise.

       [Just thinking of how the great works would sound, narrated by some of the sad sacks you see on the dole.]   

       What angel said, but if we're going to give money to the unemployed, it might as well be for doing something. Heck, it worked for the Nazis.

       Can't wait until I get to hear my corner hum-bum finally CRACK, go into flashbacks and start throwing crack rocks and sugar packets at the studio technician while narrating "Goodbye Saigon."
