The "lifestyle choice to just sit on out-of-work benefits" - cuts announced
Welfare spending to be cut by £4bn, says the chancellor. He has told the BBC that those making a "lifestyle choice to just sit on out-of-work benefits" would be affected. I hope this holds true, I deplore the people on JSA who get us all tarred with the same brush. One point made on TV was speaking of "how ready unemployed people are to take up offered employment" if they have been out of work a while, of course the other overlooked side of the coin is "how ready EMPLOYERS are to offer positions" to those out of work for a while, as there is prejudice against CV gaps etc.
