DWP Aftershocks!

with 3 comments

Oh dear, it seems like the initial earthquake has caused numerous after shocks.

Ipswich Unemployed Action can reveal that:-

  • Providers are starting to quit the Work Programme
    Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change – established for 10 years – has terminated its contract with Work Programme prime contractor Prospects.You couldn’t have chosen such a bad name for this news. Prospects? of losing subcontractors? lolOther subcontractors, including charities, are also considering pulling out of the scheme and have been for a while.

    Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change decision could persuade even hundreds of third sector providers on bad terms with prime contractors, to quit the scheme.  We wonder if the A4e performance statistics listing poor performing providers will force some into withdrawing from the scheme also

  • Businesses were concerned over the Work Experience scheme last December
    Yes, companies were uneasy after hearing news reports about benefit sanctions and the mandatory nature of Work Experience.Also credited is concerns of Trade Unions – in particular, regarding the retail industry, a typical person works 16 hours and overtime. Work Experience influx of 25 hours per week workers displaced overtime for existing staff.

    They kept bloody quiet about it then didn’t they. To be expected from the corps but the unions have also let us down as usual.

    Who exactly “credited” them anyway?
