Welfare Bill will affect Fenland people
THE Welfare Bill will affect a lot of people in Fenland there is no doubt about that.
Few could disagree that those who can work should work and pay for work should be more than benefits. The argument has been going on for years it is not the benefits that are too high the wages are too low. Of course the other side of the coin is, where is the work? Much of the work and indeed most of the vacancies that the Tory led government talk about are part time retail and leisure jobs usually at the minimum wage rate �5.93 per hour at 22 years of age.
I think it is a disgrace and a waste of young talent that so many 1-24 years old are unemployed. Raising the retirement age won’t help that situation.
