Originally posted by Toadborg Should people recieve generous unemployment benefits, how should the system be administered, is the current system working?
Originally posted by BeckyBoo I also beleive that some people are better off not working. they get rent rebates, council tax rebates, free school meals, free prescriptions etc.
A friend of mine has actually worked out quite recently that if she went back to work by the time she paid all her bills she would be at least £5.00 a week down, compared to the benefits that she receives now.
Originally posted by monocrat I don't really believe in benefits of any kind. Welfare generally creates dependency and the welfare state is based on fraud and theft.

Can you back this up?
Originally posted by Aladdin Stealing eh? Many people might argue than those who earn more than others are stealing the extra money they receive from the pockets of the rest of the workforce.
Give me a reason why taxation qualifies as 'stealing' and the CEO of Ford Motor Company earning 25 times more than a floor worker does not.
Originally posted by Toadborg M.Roll I agree with a lot of what you said, who was it aimed at? (society i guess :rolleyes: )
