    From that article

    “Next they face 13 weeks of compulsory work for “voluntary” organisations for an extra pounds 10 a week”

    If workfare of today involved charitable organisations et al, I may be for or if it allowed for people to arrange their own work experience but it doesn’t, it’s forces people to do free labour for big corporations who are using it as a cheap state funded workforce. Nobody is arguing about the principle of work experience, the protests are because big companies are being allowed to take the piss at everyone’s expense with it.

It was only a tiny tiny collision.
