Are you ‘​Mr Big Bucks’​ in the eyes of the welfare to work industry, or just someone who should be ‘​parked’​ and forgotten about?

If you want to know how people employed in the welfare to work industry think about their sick and disabled clients, you could do worse than pay a visit to the forums of the industry’​s website at Indus Delta.

There, staff employed by work programme providers but shielded by anonymity, reveal their contempt for the work programme and, in some cases, for some of their clients. This, for example, from someone who actually seems to resent not being able to provide a decent service to claimants:

“​For those that don'​t know cohort 4 is ex incapacity benefit, now on job seekers. he isn'​t even Mr Big Bucks (that’​s cohort 7, on ESA ex IB). Mr Big Bucks deserves more of my time because If I get him into work for three months I can claim 3500 whoop whoop. And I get 370 every 4 weeks for another 2 years. God if I got commission I would only need a couple of these every two years.”​
