Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. told my "coach" that i would name and shame any company she put me with and she told me i could get sanctioned for it, i told her slave labour, more specifically Indentured Servitude was a Fuedal system and not valid in a democracy, she didn't seem to care
  2. I don't mind work experience if it is lead by the customer and helpful.If providers provided a list of work placements in different sectors then that might be useful Number of hours could be weekly benefit/ minimum wage (around 11 or 12 hours)
