‘Work For Benefits’ Plan Unveiled.
Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on July 21, 2008
The Government today unveiled plans to get over one million people off benefits in the next seven years. The system advocated works like this… WORK FOR DOLE MONEY OR GET FUCK ALL!
No wait… here’s how the government put it. People who claim Jobseekers Allowance will have to work for four weeks in the community once they’ve been unemployed for over a year. You fail to do this and you don’t get any money! Now, I’m all for getting lazy bone idle scroungers off benefits, but maybe the Government should have thought of this first… Make working actually worth while! If the pay in the UK was worth working you would see many people flock to work, even to do the most menial jobs! Increase pay, that will get more people to work than forcing them to work for dole money!
The bloke that actually came up with the idea, oops wait, STOLE the idea from the Tories, was work and pensions secretary James Purnell! He had this to say…
“Instead, the longer people claim, the more we will expect in return. At three months and six months, claimants will intensify their job search and have to comply with a back to work action plan“.
I got a plan for you darlin’ hows about we do the same to you! If you don’t achieve what you said you were going to do in Labour’s manifesto we force you to work for dole money while cleaning floors in the NHS, educating our children better, stopping crime etc. After all… the longer you’re in power the more of a RETURN we expect!!!!
