Workfare

Businesses are hardly likely to want to empty staff even at minimum wage when they can get them for nothing. This policy clearly hasn't been thought through.

'We won't get rid of the minimum wage'. Why would they with internships and work for you benefit schemes to undermine it?

That's outdated (before the election). What happened to it should be the question.

The article is dated March 2010.

Under the new regime the amount paid will be half as much :lol: (just my prediction)

You also have 'The peoples supermarket'

10% off food...Ok if you spend £4,000 a week on food!

This is because in return for washing walls at TPS, you will be eligible for a 10 per cent shopping discount, and the ability to buy about 20 special "People's" foodstuffs at artificially low prices. Ordinary shoppers will be able to use the store, but not access the cheaper prices. Only we cleaners qualify for that.

Or on another thread, you have people working part time for minimum wage doing unpaid over time. So you get minimum wage for doing 16 hours a week, but end up working 20.

All I can say is don't lose your job as your next one will suck balls. :o
