Resource description

In one of the most sweeping welfare reforms in a generation, Work and Pensions secretary, Iain Duncan-Smith recently announced that the long-term unemployed would be forced to perform menial work in order to maintain their benefits. Bart Cammaerts looks closely at this policy change, and finds little evidence that it will be cost-effective, and that it may even lead to a more unfair and unequal society
