After reading today’s Observer (not my usual paper but more me than most others) I feel I should repost this, as further workfare for jobseekers is being proposed. I’m interested that the Observer‘s view is that it’s a backlash against government reforms not working. Hardly a logical one!
And I’d also like to comment on what I think of employers who are taking on staff without paying them. You don’t need me to spell that out, do you?
