Should single parents be forced to look for work?
It sounds like a Democracy Dilemma, but it’s in the UK news today:
The question being posed is, should parents be forced to take work (and stop claiming benefits) once their child reaches 12 years old, as opposed to 16 (the current limit).
This is in order to reduce the number of UK people on benefits, and thus reduce the welfare costs.
What do you think?
Currently the vote on the BBC has 79.8% saying they should be forced to work.
