I had today another seemingly pointless appointment with A4e (activity 4 employment) and boy was it quite the eye opener. The woman who i had been
assigned sat me down, checked my "job activities" and the began to chat with me about the Jobcentre and how they have started asking A4e customers for
their jobsearch again (if your on A4e then you will know that when you sign on at the Jobcentre they normally just ask you if your on A4e, sign you
and send you on your way, but recently they've started asking to see it again) and also the Jobcentre had started changing peoples signing times
(clearly to catch out the cheaters). This was all fairly uninteresting to me until she then said that the jobcentre had started to do this to because
they were checking up on them (A4e). she then said told me that it would all be changing soon and that A4e would be running the Jobcentre!! That can
only mean one thing.......Privatised Social Services!
I hope this dosen't happen, for all i know she could have been making it up, but she said what she said and she seemed serious enough about it.
Would the Government really privatise the Jobcentre???
