You should only receive benefits after having worked and paid taxes.

@96J2LCH answered…2mos

No, every capable person claiming benefits should look for a job instead

@964HRWR answered…2mos

No, they should be offered paid work instead of benefits (if able-bodied)

@95ZPR3S answered…2mos

I believe in an incentive where those who are more than capable of working but choose not to, should be made to do work unpaid in the community until they find a job. I also believe they should receive more help in trying to find work because of this.

If they volunteer over a certain amount of hours they should be paid.

No, A Universal Basic Income should be established so as to not be disincentive to employment, unlike the current Universal Credit

@93RLLFF answered…5mos

No. However, voluntary or community work should be allowed as a full alternative to paid work. Anyone who works for no pay should be allowed to claim full universal income without being harrased to find a job

@93K5XCDGreen answered…6mos

Yes, only for job seekers allowance. Not for benefits related to health and disability.

@93GT7XN answered…6mos

Yes but only until they have found a job and continue to offer benefits until they no longer need them

@93GMFY7 answered…6mos

No, as this may lock out those with medical reasons for benefits from earning money

@93576NL answered…7mos

Yes, but lower the 30hr minimum to allow more time to look for a job and halt benefits once they are on a stable income

@92S5Y8X answered…7mos

No, but it should be a condition of benefit receipt after 18 months

@92CN59C answered…8mos

No, they should be supported in finding a job whether this be through job centres or providing child care during interviews etc.

@926FR3YLabour answered…8mos

No, but with a scheme available to use community work to help increase job seeking potential.

@8ZZTPFG answered…8mos

Yea, they should. It will help them develop skills that will make them more marketable for the workforce

Yes, but lower the 30hr minimum and take circumstances into account(If they can’t work they should still receive the benefits they need)

I would personally increase the age threshold from 18-23, who should take unpaid voluntary work in order to get financial assistance for rent and other such situations.
