    Work is the best thing for people with no direction and building their self respect, and their children will develop a work ethic to become productive adults. How in the long term can reintroducing people to work be a bad thing?

    Ah, more impossible claims or stupid ideas.
    Unless Labour revert back to what they did under Blair, and which put us in this situation, they are going to have to make jobs out of thin air because in many areas there are simply no jobs.

    This country isn't tough enough on benefit scroungers and never has been. While it's very ironic that Labour have decided just now to turn the hammer on them it's the right thing. Those that created the problem in the first place should solve it.

    As far as I'm concerned, those that don't wanna work, those that choose not to work; those that want to live off the state should be deported. I welcome immigration because they want to do the rubbish jobs. They want to work.

    Especially in the North; this needs to stop.

    I'm against this proposal primarily because it will distort the job market significantly and make it harder for people who are not on JSA to obtain menail part time work. All that will happen is that any staff replacements will come from the JSA batch supported by this scheme so that the net employment gain will not be significant and will block out students or others not on JSA but who are looking for menial work.
