How 750,000 of the dole queue have turned down or quit work

More than 600,000 of the unemployed have faced sanctions for either refusing to take on work or quitting a job to go on benefits, it emerged last night.
Around 177,000 of those on Jobseeker’s Allowance rejected reasonable job offers, while 444,000 quit their employment voluntarily and claimed benefit, figures show.
A further 123,000 went on to the benefit after being fired for misconduct.

All faced a cut in their benefits for their behaviour but ministers are now proposing tougher sanctions for the so-called ‘job refuseniks’.
Anyone who breaches strict rules, including refusing to show up for training, could have their benefits withheld for at least three months. Under the proposals claimants would have to accept reasonable job offers and the jobless would have to sign up to ‘claimant commitment’, which will define what is expected of them in return for income support.
JobCentres will also provide support with personalised back-to-work programmes.

Yep, but that's not what I am on about. I've always grafted for what I want, e.g. I need some roof work doing so am going for that census work to get some dosh towards it. Not wishing to get on my high horse but I am 68 and don't really fancy working, but if I have ever wanted something I have always worked for it and reckon there are too may idle gits out there who want it for nowt and think the rest of us owe them a living. I've picked sprouts, potatoes, weeds and worked in a pie factory and a bakery. Worked in Vauxhalls and on the buses. Done fibre glass factory work and other kinds of shoit....see what I'm getting at? If you want something then graft for it. Even my bloody pension gets taxed.

Its about time the powers to be started looking at,
Are benefits to high or are wages to low. It seems to me that if someone can earn more money on benefits than working, they are never likely to get a job, thats going to reduce their standard of living. By making people work for poor wages and making their money up in benefits, isn't that using my taxes to prop up firms for shareholders etc, shouldn't these firms be made to pay wages in line with what people can earn on the dole. Governments will do anything to get figures down, regardless who suffers, as long as it looks good on there campaign garbage. More propaganda, the more they pick on the jobless, the more people will think there are jobs to have.

Bert, you and I can remember the old cry "£20 a week for everyone." Well, I think we have got it but what's the use. People who don't do a bit can't expect to get the same as those who are getting their hands dirty. Without the firms making profits then there's no work anyway. Single mothers moaning because they can't afford to take the kids abroad on holiday? What's that all about?

I've worked hard all my workin life as well , never asked for anything , payed my way , encouraging my kids to do the same.But i would n't agree with the source that was offered when having a go at a group whom that paper likes to have a go at..Dole spongers do my head in as well, they are the ones that need targeting , not a group of people that may have turned down jobs , that may have been dangerous ,may have been miles away , etc etc , thats why i asked what was reasonable.

BTW, i have 2 friends whom were made unemployed in the last year , and they have been hounded relentlessly to take any job , where as people i know who have never worked , and spend most of there days in the doorway of the local , smoking , are not getting challenged.That pisses me off

See where you are coming from toffee but if I needed work I was never too fussy, did what had to be done. If travelling round the world isn't miles away then I don't know what is, and it wasn't all comfy stuff either. It always sounds bad when you blow your own trumpet but that's what I did and I can't understand the reluctance of people not taking whatever is going even if it is just to tide them over. If a submarine isn't dangerous then I don't know what is, and I'm chuckling now.
