I do not GET this woman. She is apparently supposed to be supportive of the poor - yet she seems to want to hinder any help that our government wants to give them in order to work towards making a better life for themselves.
Shouldn't people be happy with the thought of receiving more assistance with getting into employment? Doesn't the thought of being independent of the state and being able to provide for oneself - and their family - make for a brighter future?
The government is not saying - if you can't find a job you are on your own - you get nothing. The government is saying we are going to try to help you get out of the rut that you are in. They have actually offered MORE money to young people who are willing to train for employment.
What is Sue's problem with that? She is supposed to be supportive of the poor and people on welfare benefits yet she appears to want to put her foot on their heads and keep them right where they are - in their ruts.
I do not understand Sue Bradford.
