  1. SANCTIONSApril 2015

  2. QUOTES • Suddenly you're not helping somebody into sustainable employment, which is what you're employed to do. You're looking for ways to trick your customers into 'not looking for work'. You come up with many ways. I've seen dyslexic customers given written job searches, and when they don't produce them – what a surprise – they're sanctioned

  3. QUOTES Sanctions were “wreaking havoc with people’s ability to find work”. “Four weeks without jobseeker’s allowance being paid creates a barrier to work, as people’s struggle to find the money for food, rent and bills means that their job search is interrupted”.

  4. QUOTES • “ Sanctions are only used as a last resort for a tiny minority who don’t follow the rules and hardship payments are available if people need them. “
