High labor force participation rates indicate a poor society in which people are desperate for income.,
Did you really intend to say that? Seriously. A high labor force participation rate indicates that people are not only active in the economy which is very good thing, and it also means people are actively taking care of themselves and not relying on others.
The thing about labor force participation rate is it includes discouraged workers and workers who otherwise want or would like but can't get jobs. Everyone who isn't in the labor force doesn't want to be there and won't magically take up a job if you hand them one--which means they're also not welfare recipients, since welfare goes to unemployed labor force.
I don't even know where to begin with this statement. Labor force participation should include ALL workers...period. Just because you are "discouraged" doesn't mean you shouldn't work. Sorry, if you can work, you should work...PERIOD. For most of us, sure we would love to stay home and not work, but that doesn't mean I have the right to not and force others to pay for my discouragement.
