In the UK, a programme has been implemented called the "Work Programme". Officially designed to get you into work and give you crucial skills to get a much needed job, it is actually better designed for private companies to make money out of the unemployed. David Dennis was a bright student who found himself cast into the middle of this new agenda upon leaving school. He saw first-hand the many ways private training companies are making money from the unemployed. He saw the way the unemployed are thrown into work placements to work for free. He saw the way his government is devaluing paid workers in an effort to bring down wages. He saw it all and he lived to tell the tale! With startling honesty, Dennis takes us through his experiences of life on the "dole" and warns us all of the dangers of unemployment. His story is a warning we should all heed.
