DWP spent £92,249.86 taxpayers’ cash trying to stop public seeing slave labour firms

The Department for Work and Pensions has revealed it spent £92,249.86 in legal fees trying to stop the public seeing firms involved in its slave labour schemes (collectively known as workfare).

The courts dismissed its bizarre claim that protesters wanted the information revealing to stop people getting into work.  However this didn’t stop the DWP still squeezing the same unsubstantiated claim into a FOIA response this month.

The fact is Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) is paid to claimants on the understanding they search for paid jobs.  However the DWP made it nigh on impossible to search for jobs because it insisted they spent 37 hours per week upwards providing unpaid labour to over 500 exploitative firms named here.  Some of the firms withdrew from the scheme when they realised it wouldn’t be popular to be seen providing unpaid labour.
