Default Welfare Reform

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-12486158

Quote:
  • A single universal credit to come into force in 2013
  • Tax changes to enable people to keep more income
  • Changes to the disability living allowance
  • More details of the back-to-work programme
  • Those refusing to work facing a maximum three-year loss of benefits
  • Annual benefit cap of about 26,000 per family
  • Review of sickness absence levels
Is this good or bad thing? The annual per family cap looks like a good idea to me! Will stop the proles spawning shed loads of sprogs.

I've been mentioning these reforms for a while, they've been Ian Duncan Smith's brain child for years.

They sound good on the whole, stop making living on the dole a life option and make working always financially beneficial.

Not just that, they are part time 10 hours here, 16 there, need to get rid of the benefit system as a whole, working for min wage is pointless if you can claim benefits which pays for literally working full time

Dont forget travelling costs as well, jobs are not just on the door stop 5/10 miles miles add in petrol costs or public transport and more money you are not bringing home, when I went to the job centre 3 years ago they expect you to travel 40 miles for a job vacancy

Sounds good to me but if you read the Guardian or Independent reader comments, anyone would think he is going to gas all the unemployed or something. Fucking idiots.

The BBC as well, took a very biased line when I saw it earlier. They also suggested that it is a NEW thing, that your level of savings will affect your benefits. They said that if you have over 6,000 then your benefits will start to be reduced, and if you have over 16,000 you may not get anything. ERM THAT HAPPENS ALREADY, IT'S ALWAYS FUCKING BEEN LIKE THAT YOU WANKERS. And rightly fucking so! But they were going like, ooh, won't this cause hardship to families who have been saving up for something

If you can afford to save, you don't need the fucking benefits.

It sounds a lot, but considering you get families on WAY above that currently it is a major step in the right direction.
