I didn't say that the minimun wage would be removed. It really is quite simple the economic reality is that allowing disabled people to work for less than minimum wage would put pressure on the salaries of the non-disabled who they must compete with, meanins that you would find that non-disabled people would find more jobs would become minimum wage jobs for them that weren't before. Some jobs would become only done by the disabled for the lower rate.

I wonder if apprentices are worth less as human beings, they ARE paid below the minimum wage.

They have a minimum wage all of their own.

Damn fool, can't he even appreciate his own disability?

Isn't it also a dis-ability to look at another man and not consider him an equal? (born of a female human being)

Yeah sure, money makes people equally qualified to be useless burdens...

I could write a five thousand words essay on the disgusting treatment of the sick, the disenfranchised and the disadvantaged perpetrated by the coalition government; however, it almost feels as though it simply isn't worth the trouble on this site. Not in any way complaining about ATS, but in truth we need to be signing petitions and writing to our MPs and other local representatives, in addition promoting the causea of charitable organisations well-placed to pressure the sick bastards who are pulling the strings.

This is the guy who is charged with executing policy reform aimed exclusively at supporting the afore-mentioned underprivileged groups. He is quite clearly not fit for purpose; what is equally sickening is that the Prime minister has refused to sack him, and the Deputy Prime minister has springboarded off the scandal into the quagmire of 'difficult questions regarding the worth and capabilities of disabled people in the UK.

These #ers are guilty of mass abuse of the most vulnerable people in our society, consistently, in a great number of different ways, since they came to power in 2010. The latest 'gaff' simply underscores in no uncertain terms the attitude of the ruling right-wing class towards those who are economically minimally active through no fault of their own.

David Cameron makes a mockery of the name of Christ, a hypocrite of the highest order when he claims that his faith is important to him. Clearly not important enough that he would pay any heed whatsoever to the commandments to care for the widows and orphans - and their modern day equivalents. The term used in the gospels is a catch-all intended to convey the point, that those with the means are morally obligated to protect the weak and vulnerable. With one hypocritical step at a time, the journey of a thousand miles of cruelty and unabashed service to the wealthy, is almost complete. Pray God deliver us from these evil clowns.
