Another A4e employee arrested for fraud

with 4 comments

Continuing on the Another A4e theme… we can reveal a fifth person, former A4e employee, has now been arrested for fraud.

This will come as a big blow (although not a surprise)  for A4e who has been awarded two new multi-million pound contracts – although they are yet to be signed and have not yet commenced. It looks as if these contracts may be at risk.

Recently A4e released some more propaganda full of false statements and lies.

    • So, now when are Working Links going to have a visit from the Old Bill?

        In response to your question about the doom of Working Links, have a look at this interesting report from the Public Services Union in 2009 warning about fraud in the welfare to work industry:

        http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/news_and_events/news_centre/index.cfm/id/F6038122-D400-4B26-B2CF44ABBD4F2A05

        It should be crystal clear that privatisation (of anything) will put money and profit before the needs of people!

        It is also interesting to note that when Working Links started off around the year 2000, they were based inside Jobcentres working alongside Civil Servants – until the latter realised that their own jobs were ultimately threatened by the burgeoning privatisation of the dole!

        Shortly after that, the Civil Servants stopped Working Links personnel from using Jobcentre facilities. Nowadays, of course, Working Links are distributed globally in big modern private offices as the welfare-to-work industry multiplies – all funded by the taxpayer.

        Let’s hope the taxpayer – especially the Daily Mail and Daily Express-reading taxpayer – wakens up and recognises who the real leeches are when it comes to bleeding the taxpayer dry – and then perhaps we will see the demise of the mercenary welfare-to-work industry!

      • There is a purblind refusal, a stubborn will, to refuse to accept that these companies are empire-building enterprises who cannot remtoely solve unemployment.

        Yet they remain the central plank of successive Governments’ policy – from New Labour onwards.

        I can only think of the Potemkin village dillusion. When the Tsar visits everything is amde to look great.
