Reduce benefits to no more than minimum wage

Additional Information

I propose an overall to the benefits system so that no one person can claim more than the basic minimum wage.

Hopefully this would give people who live off the welfare state some incentive to actually get out and work for a living.

Its not fair that people on benefits and have never worked can get more money than people that work 40 hours a week.
