That is absolutely disgusting. I cannot believe your are revelling in someone getting a three year sanction, what a despicable person you are. Perhaps he needs help rather than punishment.

That sentence doesn't make sense. But perhaps it is a good indicator that you are giving him the wrong type of support. Most people with any experience of the Jobcentre realise it is the last place to go for help in finding a job, whether that be because of a lack of resources, or vindictive staff, or both.This person is claiming jobseekers allowance, an allowance to seek work and he has been claiming this for eight years, on top of this he gets the other benefits I have mentioned. He has been sanctioned on numerous occasions because he fails to comply with the regulations for claiming this benefit. Prior to October these sanctions were smaller periods he has, as I have stated, received as much help as he wants. The jobcentre is not there to get him a job. We assist the job seeker to help themselves find work, hence why they get the benefit. Nothing to do with resources or vindictive staff, the jobseeker doesn't comply he gets sanctioned. What exactly do you suggest we do?
Unbelievable, you really are a sick, twisted individual.I take great objection to this. I have a family, I work and I complete several hours voluntary work each week. I am neither sick nor twisted. I am paid to do a job and I do it well. I am more than willing to help an individual but I object to people playing the benefit system thinking that 'dole' is their right. I am a tax payer and and like the thought of my contribution going to those who need it rather then expect it. Yes it is hard to find work at the moment but we have not been in a recession for eight years, there is no excuse for a person to be unemployed this long.
Perhaps because he senses that you are creaming your knickers at the thought of him having zero income to survive, and therefore deserving of abuse.

And it will continue to get worse I'm afraid. But to be far there are still people who do not help them selves.
I spoke to a customer yesterday in our office kicking off because he now has a 26 week sanction for not applying for a job, reason he 'didn't get round to it'. This is now the 3rd time in 8 weeks he hasn't got round to applying for a job because he has other things to do and now faces a third sanction and it will be 3 years. Eight years unemployed, I say about time too.:beer:
