I applaud the verdict, for what it is, but I wish it went further, and said the entire scheme is illegal.
Years ago, you used to go into a Job Centre, look on a board or speak to someone behind a desk, they would phone a company,say "I've got so and so
here, when are you interviewing?" etc etc..
The Job Centre (clue's in the title) used to be the place where you went if you were out of work for Help
to get back into work.
These Work Fair/Welfare to Work schemes are not Schemes at all.... they're scams.
They're making the 3-4 companies that run them, millions, if not billions of pounds for doing what every report and independent panel has said you
would have more luck WITHOUT these schemes doing... FIND A JOB.
You're actually less likely to find work on a welfare to work or workfair scheme.... that is a FACT.
Yet because a few of the Governments pals want to make some money and exploit the poor, down-on-their-luck jobless for some cheap/free labour, people
have to go on these schemes.
I think they get either £10,00 or £12,000 per person over 2 years.... most people are on these schemes for 2 years.
It's a joke.
The stats show that these Programmes do NOT work
I'm sure most people remember this being all over the news anyway...
These schemes are a joke.
We should go back to the old system.... but I guess there's no money and free labour in just finding people work is there? There must be a way to
exploit and make money from the unemployed.
