Don't like Mandatory Work Activity? Then contact Seetec bosses!

WE are publishing below in full the latest bulletin from 'Boycott Workfare:
A mysterious source has revealed the mobile numbers for some of the top executives profiting from forced unpaid work at Seetec. This workfare company pockets over £400 for every person sent on Mandatory Work Activity while claimants retain only their Jobseekers’ Allowance of £286.80 for 4 weeks’ work. These executives are currently pushing for more people to be sanctioned. They are helping push ever increasing numbers of people into hunger and destitution. These are the executives – whose wages are paid solely by the taxpayer – who are bidding for even more of your money from the state, to force people into workfare.
Seetec has the contract for delivering Mandatory Work Activity in London and East England and has numerous contracts for the disastrous Work Programme. We’ve already heard they’re not big fans of Boycott Workfare, complaining that placements are more difficult to find as a result of your campaigning!
One in five people sent on Mandatory Work Activity has their benefits stopped. Sanctions can now last for up to three years. These managers ruin people’s lives on an industrial scale. We think pointing this out to them might just ruin their day:
Andrew Emerson, Executive Director at Seetec – 07977 002278 andrew.emerson@seetec.co.uk
Mark Smith, Operational Director for Mandatory Work Activity, 07870 244087 mark.smith@seetec.co.uk
Please contact these Seetec bosses and help make sure they can’t go on ignoring the consequences of their workfare profiteering.
Top tips:
  • Why not highlight your concern about the jobs that are being replaced, the fact volunteering is being undermined or the devastating impact of sanctions?
  • If you don’t want them to call you back, you can dial 141 first.
  • No credit? You could try an online free text service or there’s always email!
  • They’re paid by the public, so it’s totally legitimate for the public to contact them with our concerns.

Emails to these despicable people, are returned with a message stating that they are currently not available and the accounts are not monitored.

Because they don't want to heave to READ about the person who's just about to commit suicide because they are so poor, destitute, and have nothing to live for.

These SEETEC executives should be shot.

Working 32 hours a week for free at a charity store for £72 a week is £2.25 an hour. There is also the 4 hour job search at Maidstone and the daily phone calls from advisors.
