  • No. How can you justify companies having their work-force subsidised by the taxpayer? In its current incarnation, there is nothing to stop companies merely rotating unpaid jobseekers in and out of positions, whilst cutting part-time staffs hours as a result. This is exactly what has been happening in lots of major stores on the high streets.

      Totally agree with Chris. I've linked the 'Boycott Workfare' site in my own post (Idiot Wind, for those interested), and that is EXACTLY the sort of problem that lost of workers are facing first hand. I think it's symptomatic of the obscure rhetoric that brought us the 'Big Society', the umbrella concept that's actually disempowering communities.

      Here's the site if anyone would like to read a few horror stories: http://www.boycottworkfare.org/
