Kind of an Insight, its quite a complicated process as everyone involved (including the participant – but possibly not the Company owner) believes in paid work – as folk N of Watford always do.
The blog is trying hard to work with the no payment concept to find out if it really is any help to the long term unemployed (younger folk may have the Apprentice Schemes to encounter.)
Searching for work as well as 30 hours unpaid labour can be quite a problem. Ditto Interview time.
Hopefully its not moving towards a Command Economy ! More Info needed.
