The government is to soon be expected to publicise plans to force those with mental health or mobility difficulties to find employment they are able to perform from home or risk losing their welfare payments.
Laura Trott, Chief Secretary to the Treasury says that the Conservative Party believes that there is a “duty on citizens” to work if they are able to.
A crackdown on the requirements individuals must meet to receive benefits has risen from the concern of large numbers of citizens who are currently “written off” and cannot work due to personal difficulties.
This plan aims to cut national insurance for 28 million individuals who are claiming currently in hopes of confronting the decline in workforce the UK has witnessed since the Covid pandemic.
New amenities will also be launched with the Back To Work Plan including the ‘Work Well’ service that will provide employment and health support enabling those to stay in employment.
Members of the public have criticised the Conservative’s benefits suppression, one saying “I’d prefer them to focus on the BILLIONS of pounds that their mates avoid in OUR taxes in a year than a few measly quid a few get in benefits”.
“Grim”, “sickening”, and “hopeless” are the words some UK citizens are using to describe the upcoming governmental plans.
Others fault the employment system itself by stating they “apply for jobs… don’t even get a reply” emphasising the dominant struggle there presently is to find long-term employment.
Many citizens are stating the economic stress those on benefits already encounter and expressing that this governmental crackdown will only emphasise the poor effects it will have on those affected.
