Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Yet again the suggestion that typical benefits are paid to people who are skiving off. But most people receiving benefits are in fact either in low paid work, or unable to work because of their circumstances, mostly because of real disabilities.

They've decided on a level of cuts they wish to impose, specifically a massive percentage of cuts on help for people with disabilities, in advance of knowing what the actual circumstances are. The result isn't going to be people going out to work and their lives getting better. It's going to be their continuing to be forced to live on benefits, but in greater poverty.
