So let me ask you a question, how come so many spots were vacant?

Or is it the current system itself that fails to direct people to what they really need?

The current system is set up to give a hand out not a hand up. So if you have no money for transportation, how are you getting there?

What good does it do when you cannot operate a computer, or if you cannot read or do simple math or write?

Please explain these programs? Because the only ones I know of are resume, interviewing networking, along those lines, which do little when you lack the skills that I have just mentioned.
