Just saw this on the new that the government was planning to force people into unpaid labour or lose three months of their allowance if the won't do it. The real kicker is that they want the unemployed to do menial work for up to thirty hours a week. Thirty hours a week at JSA rates? Are they having a giraffe? I get Â£65 a week and doing 30 hours would be the equivalent of working for Â£2.20 an hour! I might be over reacting a bit, but that's just not on! If they want me to do that work for 30 hours a week they should call it a job and give me wages to suit! Knowing my luck I'd probably end up in a kitchen or doing a 'women's job' or some such.
