[quote:Master X:MV8yMTY2MjYzXzM3MDAzMTc4XzJBNTg1QkUy] I've actually read about this workfare and it's pretty fucking screwed up. You basically get the small piddling amount of jobs seekers allowance (and I mean small) you normally do and are forced to do a 40-hour job week at some chain-store, who gets your labour FOR FREE. You're also likely to get a job far away from home, so a substantial amount of your food/rent money is spent on public transport. It's "supposedly" meant to train you up for a proper job there, but they just throw you away after your term and get the next lot of work farers in. These companies actually hire less proper job seekers because they know they're getting free workfare people. It's so screwed up the first time I heard about it I got really angry. So basically, you get next to nothing anyway, then you get put on a scheme that takes away all your time and energy, wastes your money on travel expenses, and robs you of opportunities to get a real job THAT ACTUALLY PAYS. Probably one of the reasons so many people (that REALLY are ill) are failing their disability allowances, so they get put on JSA and are forced to do workfare. And this will always be abused by the chain stores and other stores because well, free workers...? Better profits/bottom line? Which store wouldn't jump at that? [/quote]
Here in England we have a government institution called the Job Centre where you claim unemployment benefit. Now you go here every 2 weeks, show them a list of jobs you've applied for and they give you money. But there's a catch.
The longer you stay on, the more you become their bitch. First they start inviting you to meetings with them, do a jobs search (they have no extra resources to finding a job than you do at home), these occur every month or so and they're annoying.
After a while, you get put onto a program called 'workfare' where you literally work 40 hour weeks for big chain outlets for your benefit. This works out at £1.70 per hour ($2.50) at tax payer expense. If you refuse to do this then they sanction you.
WTF. If a company needs someone, EMPLOY them you cunts.
Fucking socialists have done this.
