Young jobseekers told to work without pay or lose unemployment benefits

This is so disgusting, I don’t know where to begin.

Surely if these companies can find jobs for people to do - jobs that take up 30 hours a week - then they can, oh, I don’t know, actually create and give people a paid job? No? Oh that’s right, why would they want to create a job and pay someone a wage when the government tells them they can just make people work for free instead? This isn’t ‘work experience’, it is forced, unpaid labour.

Charities and community-based work/projects would benefit more from unemployed people working with them than a company like Tesco’s would, so why isn’t that in place instead? 

Fuck this government.
