I was brought up that if I wanted something, I had to work for it and not to expect it simply to be given to me.
I know life as moved on since my days but I consider it the right thing to do that the Government changes things around from being better off on benefits than actually working.
How can that be possibly even be the case - when it is the tax on the workers that funds the benefits the others receive?
As I understand things Universal Credits will start to turn things around so financially it will be better off to work that sit at home waiting for your benefit payments to reach your bank account.
Clearly there does seem to be some implementation issues - but those apart - is UC the way forward - or will the masses object and riot like they did when the poll tax was going to be the next big step forward?
