Government 'turning their back on the unemployed'
Another link on "24Dash", that is too true. The plans to axe the Future Jobs Fund struck a chord, because that scheme is so like that which I am on, and no doubt gave many people a much needed chance, it similarly funded waged jobs in the public sector and "social enterprises" like where I am. The ministers constantly make tough talk towards claimants yet as highlighted by the now shadow minister, £1.2 billion was actually being cut from support for the unemployed, and the new planned Work Programme would not be in place for at least another 12 months. With other cuts in the public sector they are going to have to pay out even more jobseekers allowance anyway.
