The letter from Iain Christie regarding the Government “forcing jobless young people to do unpaid work…” incensed me.
Mr Christie saw fit to compare the Prime Minister’s quote “Work brings Dignity”, when Cameron was intimating that jobless young people should be made to do some work in order to claim their benefits, with the sign outside the Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work makes you free), an astonishing comparison.
Had Mr Christie requested that the Government ensure that our young jobless, if they really must do something, only were given work with dignity, then I would have agreed. I really cannot understand why people receiving benefits should not have to do something in return for money received from the taxpayer.
