Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. I am currently on an MWA in this shit-hole of a place; the 'working' conditions are absolutely horrific. I can confirm that it is a mix of MWA/CWP placements.
  2. 10 workers all from jobcentre, none paid workers except management. Forced to recycle rubbish and cardboard and paper, even empty a pallet of lager pouring it out by hand so that they could crush the cans. Also at least 3 of the boys asked to leave and sent back to jobcentre for not working at a fast enough pace.
  3. Employer agreed the scheme was harsh, employer also criticised lack of additional allowance for snacks while on MWA.
