Q. If you're on benefits, have you felt pushed into work? If you're in paid employment, what’s it been like for you?
I claim Universal Credit and hate how the system makes me feel for that. I don’t work enough hours for them, so they frequently send links to job fairs or job roles, despite them having no idea of my skill set and abilities. I was recently sent a link for construction jobs, baring in mind that my working life has been mainly in the public and voluntary sectors, I’m not sure how they thought I might be qualified to start building houses.
