28. Bailouts Can Preserve Jobs
Imagine a company on the verge of collapse employs 20,000 people. Those 20,000 people will all lose their jobs, and could very likely have to rely on unemployment or welfare to meet their day-to-day needs.
The government may find a bailout for a company is necessary to save those people’s jobs. If all of those people can remain employed, the government has saved money because 20,000 people will not be receiving welfare payments.
