It Might Also Lower the Unemployment Rate

Digby has a market-based solution to the problem of the “resume holes” for the long-term unemployed:

I have a business idea. Who wants to incorporate and and sell themselves to jobless people as their "current job" for resume purposes? You could just charge a little fee if the person gets the job. Why not? It’s no more immoral than saying people shouldn’t be allowed to work if they aren’t already working.

In a world in which employers and even spouses of Presidential candidates don’t seem troubled by mail-order degrees, why not mail-order employment history too?
