New system is ‘inhuman’
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The old system was not outdated, it was working perfectly well.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.
