Make work pay

Additional Information

It seems crazy that, in view of this Government's commitment to 'make work pay', it intends to increase unemployment benefits by 5.2% in April 2012 but will freeze public sector pay for the next two years at least! This is in addition to a 3% increase in the employees' pension contributions!
Where is the incentive for those on benefits to find work?
This Government should ensure that increases in benefits should never be more than the increase in public sector pay.
