Salvos say 'no'

This headline made no sense to me, Salvos pull out of Welfare to Work program.

NZ translation, Sallies pull out of Welfare to Work Programme.

Over the years the Salvation Army has become increasingly socialist which I don't understand. It appears they no longer want to do the work they have traditionally undertaken even if the government pays them to. They would rather shunt people back onto state welfare.

Maybe I am being unfair. Any organisation which takes government money has to jump through hoops. Could be they simply do not want to jump. But that doesn't help the individual who needs their assistance.

More likely they are giving up on a group of people who are beyond help and putting the responsibility for them back on government.
