Not really a benefits scam as such. Ok, the original renter moves out and the gangmaster takes it on. Ever heard of gangmasters?
They run gangs of illegal workers off the system. They supply farmers who want their crops in cheap, they supply the proliferation of work agencies in fact anywhere that a large body of workers are needed off the grid. The workers work, the gangmaster gets their pay and deducts his share plus costs for the bed, transport and whatever he can con them out of, then gives them the pittance that is left. The worker can't complain as they're off the system and if caught would likely be deported.
But the same again,just because you don't see it with your own eyes it don't exist.


Nope, never heard of 'Gangmasters'. Bloody hell, is this a common happening? How come the council/authorities are not all over this like a rash? Is it cut backs and crappo funding? This truly is awful, yet another 'slave trade' in modern terms. Unbeliveable this can happen in this day and age
I had no idea.

The Government recognised some time ago that 'gangmasters' were a phenomenon that was not going away whatever happened, so there is now a "Gangmasters Licensing Authority." I s#1t you not. The reasoning is fairly pragmatic. The workers are needed, the economy needs the produce they create, so the practice has to be regulated. If you try to operate a work-gang outside the legal framework, you'll get prosecuted. But if you do it by the book, you won't harm anyone or feed a black market.

Wow, I had no idea this was going on under our noses. Nice of the authorities to sort the problem by just licencing it. Geeze, that is helpful!.

Thank you for the enlightenment.

The Protestant Work Ethic writ large, unfortunately. Regulate skivvy-labour because it's productive, but keep cannabis illegal because it might make people unproductive. Plenty of sticks in evidence, but few carrots on offer.
