Not on the Work Programme

Well its good news as far as my appointment at the JC last Friday.

I was told I am not to be considered for the Work Programme for at least 9 month.

I am to get support from the JC instead.  I have gone a full circle now. As when I first went on Job Seekers I had to see an advisor at the JC for a  year, and then I was refered to and agency, and  when it ended,  back to the Job Centre.

Its all nonsense stuff anyway-The Work Programme, and private companies (being paid to baby sit people) Now some people may think I sould be out cleaning streets for free, as was once mentioned by a local MP. Ok but what about the people who get paid to clean streets? it will take away their job.  Its like that with a part of the work programme, you do unpaid labour, but as I always say, who will pay someone when they are being sent people for free?

I do not know the answers to alot of this stuff but I do know that realistic jobs and opportunities are what people need, and help financially.  It is already stressfull being out of work and with the added pressure of trying to manage daily. The forever increase in the cost of living is driving people further away as they then become so down they start to loose all hope.
