I have just been reading on the brilliant Johnny Void that Community Work Placements and Mandatory Work Activity are to be scrapped.
This is fantastic news and it also shows that Workfare has been and is a massive failure as well as slave labour and a huge con.
So many companies and charities pulled out of the scheme because they did not want to have bad publicity by being seen to exploiting the unemployed for profit.
The Boycott Workfare movement have done and continue to do a great job in exposing those companies and charities who have used Workfare workers and forcing them to stop.
This news is a massive victory for them and everyone involved.
