Mentally Disabled Are Being Forced to Work – Instead Start a Business Today!
The DWP went from an assessment system that somewhat fairly assessed fitness to work using a doctor and other professional consultants, with information taken from relevant sources to support the claim, to a system that mostly uses random questionable people with minimal health qualifications assessing with the aid of a computer-based system deliberately designed to find faults thus making people fit to work. The result: people have committed suicide. Tens of thousands of people have died after being declared ‘fit for work. Hundreds of thousands are being plunged into deeper poverty. Foodbank use has increased by at least 2000% since 2009/10. Many people’s mental and physical health conditions have worsened as a direct result of the tests and the cuts. The DWP are finding any excuse however flimsy to sanction people; limiting or cutting altogether their only source of income for week, months, or even years. People have been admitted to hospitals that are already short-staffed and overrun because people are going hungry and becoming malnourished. People have died of hunger. The sick and disabled are being exploited as cheap labor, and are clearly regarded as ‘2nd class citizens’ by leading figures in the DWP including Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Iain Duncan Smith (IDS) and Lord David Freud. And the DWP is being investigated by the United Nations.
Become Your Own Boss!
The horrifying truth is DWP is going to be forcing people with Mental Health Disabilities back to work. However, there is a solution to every problem.
In the event, this starts to unfold and where you may have to go to endless job interviews, meet with job advisors, etc, you could start your own business, thus eliminating all the stress and anxiety.
You could essentially become your own boss, a sole trader, but I recommend starting small and expanding steadily.
It is not hard to set up a business but you must have a plan and things you may not necessarily know but need to know, you can learn online. Besides we can advise you should you need our support.

FINAL NOTE FROM THE EDITOR.
Reading between the lines the UK government is in debt and needs to get the economy rolling again. Where they can sanction (force people to work) they will. They will use every trick in the book to find ways to take from the poor and give to the rich. Remember the government sees disabled people as a burden on their purse strings, so we have to stand our ground and fight for our rights and not give in to intimidation, humiliation, discrimination, and bullying.
