I Noticed this Extract;

‘The violence of workfare’ documents 64 concrete allegations of breaches of health and safety legislation, at 43 workfare exploiters across the UK – in charities, social enterprises, maintenance companies and discount stores, as well as in environmental, agricultural and recycling projects. The first-hand accounts that the chapter is based on were all submitted to Boycott Workfare via the name and shame section of this website. These ‘employers’ benefited from 1,139 weeks of forced labour from the 97 people whose testimonies are included. That’s almost 22 years of coerced, unpaid labour.

The fact that its "Mandatory" with long Sanctions if anyone refuses, Makes it worse,
And as its often life threatening, Makes this Government's actions appalling.
Whole booklet is well worth a read.

Their all a bunch of greedy bastards.

While gov can send as many sheep to the slaughter as possible, businesses are a happy clappy lot. :angry:
