The revolutionary will try to empower workers, and encourage them to improve their skills. Protection from unfair dismissal is one thing, but often there is a fear of leaving one job to try another in case it doesn’t work out, or indeed to leave the dole and try a jobfor fear of ending up barred from the dole. There will be 7 days waiting for a dole claim, but that will be paid upon return to work. If you leave a job voluntarily, or lose your job through your own fault you will be barred for an extra week, the first time, but longer for subsequent times.
Partners of claiments may earn up to £80 aweek without affecting the amont of dole received.
There will be a placement scheme where claiments will be offered work for 20 hours a week at minimum wage doing work considered useful for the community, but where it would be impossible to offer that work as a normal job. Grant aided activities such as the Arts or Sport could have some of their grants replaced by having these workers for free.
Refusal to accept the placement could result in a bar from the dole.The worker will be free to look for other employment outside the hours worked on the scheme.
