    I think , under the current circumstances , they would earn their money and pay tax etc etc , which is win/win for the economy.

    Earning is one thing. Paying another.

    This is a time of crisis , in which some of the workforce will be repurposed to where they are needed most. Maybe half the politicians should be sent out to work in rural areas - that would automatically reduce the problems by half.
