New sys­tem is ‘in­hu­man’

Wishaw Press - - YOUR VIEWS -

More than 600 emer­gency food sup­plies were handed to strug­gling kids in North La­nark­shire as Universal Credit con­tin­ues to be rolled out. Mother­well and Wishaw MP Mar­ion Fel­lows re­it­er­ated calls to halt Universal Credit as food­bank use in North La­nark­shire has soared. Universal Credit is an in­hu­man and bul­ly­ing type ben­e­fit.

The old sys­tem was not out­dated, it was work­ing per­fectly well.

The gov­ern­ment are just not lis­ten­ing and just do­ing what they want.

It’s just an­other ex­cuse to tar­get the un­em­ployed and the low in­come worker. Cather­ine Don­nelly Last week we re­vealed Wishaw take­away Mr Chef’s boss could face a fine of up to £80,000 for em­ploy­ing il­le­gal work­ers. Im­mi­gra­tion En­force­ment of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered three Pak­istani na­tion­als, aged 28, 30 and 67, work­ing il­le­gally at Mr Chef on Craigneuk Street. A 23-year-old Pak­istani na­tional was also found to be em­ployed il­le­gally at Mr Chef in Ud­dingston. If found guilty I hope the lo­cal com­mu­nity will join me in re­fus­ing to buy from their busi­ness.

Scot­land must de­mand peo­ple are em­ployed le­git­i­mately or face fewer jobs for le­gal per­sons. Johnny White The truth will come out so give the shop/fam­ily a chance to give their side be­fore jump­ing on the band wagon. Christo­pher Love Thewishaw Press have kicked off a fan­tas­tic new fea­ture to find our read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week.
