'People on tax credits are set to face "significant issues" when they are moved to universal credit, a Holyrood committee has said.

The group warned that there had been "less light" cast on how the shift from one system to another would work.

It also shared concerns about "punitive" conditions that could be put on the employed and said the switch should be halted.

The UK government said a majority were happy with universal credit.

Holyrood's social security committee shared its concerns in its latest report into in-work poverty, which has just been published.'

And so another disruptive "Can of Worms" will most likely plunge millions more into Utter Poverty. :angry:

"Conservatives: come off benefits and we'll make work pay
Jobless people who choose to come off benefits and go to work will no longer lose out financially under the biggest shake-up of the welfare system for decades." (29 Jul 2010)

So much for this idea of helping people into work then, back in 2010. :silly:

Do not let the behaviour of others destroy your inner peace.
