Reasons To Disagree

We shouldn't force people into community work. It is always nice when people contribute to their community, and we definately could benefit from any contribution. However this should be done by choice not reluctantly to ensure a wage. If there is community work to be done, advertise it and pay for it.

True - but not for compulsion. if you let people take ownership and have some pride and dignity, you might just find that they clean up their own back yards. the nicest places aren't those where the inhabitants have the least choice. give choice, give hope.

True - but see taking jobs from others

community work would need to be defined. Pride and dignity needs to be kept in mind, however, it would appear that the way to keep this up is to provide worthwhile work that the participants can take pride in while as the same time developing skills that they can "on sell" to "real" employers. Where is the pride being on welfare at home with little money to do anything and no reason to get out of bed in the morning?

Link it to the Living Wage

That's correct. Something to achieve, to do, to need.

Reasons for Remain Neutral

The offer could be made, but there should be no compulsion. It is also important to remember that the minimum wage is a lot higher than what beneficiaries currently receive and so would cost more tax payers' money. I don't have a problem with that, but it is important right wingers remember this, because this seems to be a right wing idea but right wingers also happen not to like paying more tax.

I think there's always one off cash jobs to be done , elderly need there groceries done , houses cleaned , working parents sometimes need babysitters , dog walkers , people to mow the lawns . Pick up rubbish , do a community garden the list goes on
