Job service makes no sense
The story of Tom, who has schizophrenia, shows how people with mental illness continue to be devalued (“Not working”, February 18-24). Tom was devalued by the employment agency, his employer and the government disability service that endorsed this rort. This flawed and counterproductive system reduces the person to $10,000 and rewards the employer for terminating the employee when the subsidy runs out. Evil is treating another person as an object and not as “you”.
