Introducing Schemes to make the unemployed work without pay defeats the entire concept of the Universal Benefit and allows unscrupulous businesses take advantage of vulnerable people.
it is also important to stop some businesses seeking competitive advantage by using 'free' labour.
This process should be stopped now.
Why is this important?
The whole idea of Universal benefit was to eliminate the exploitation of the poor and disadvantaged.
the re-introduction of this concept is a social disgrace and it should be stopped. We should also not continue the current propaganda campaign to encourage the UK Public to blame the unemployed for our economic problems which, in reality, rest exclusively with the government.
