Don`t you just love the way they say `supporting` people? Support in real terms would be behaving correctly and not using bullying tactics of sanctions because the job isn`t suitable or the location too far. Doesn`t matter to them though, does it?

So am I right in saying that if someone is asked to apply for a zero hours contract job and they get it, that any hours they do (say, four hours in one week as an example) would be deducted from their monthly Universal Credit minus the 63p in the pound they allow us to keep? And also the money earned is to pay for bus fares or petrol costs as well in this calculation?
As far as I can see, this would just be working for the peanuts on offer or as they would say, gaining experience.
