Registration to beg
It guts me that we now have beggars on our streets and even more that we are growing used to them. It also seems to be skipping past our social systems and adding to the mistrust of the poor by the middle class.
The general point of view seems to be that there are social systems (eg; WINZ) in place and the people begging are double dipping the system by getting a benefit and then getting donations.
One way of combating this would be registration to beg and arrest without registration. Arrest would lead straight to social services for assessment and help at which point a license to beg would be given if applicable.
(Actually the above idea makes me very uncomfortable so better ones would be wonderful.)
