Four celebrities continue to learn about the realities of unemployment as they move in with an unemployed buddy in the second
part of this documentary, which explores joblessness in modern Britain.
Larry Lamb, Diarmuid Gavin, Emma Parker Bowles and Meg Matthews have been
stripped of all their money, clothes and personal possessions, and are
experiencing what it's like to be out of work and out of money.
I watched this and it was very eye opening as the main point was Jobseekers Allowance.
It deems that if you are unemployed and claiming Jobseekers Allowance a monetary payment is given to help you seek work according to the programme not to support you as there is no other source of income available to the claimant.
Also i could not understand the view point of giving the monetary amount back to the government if you have obtained work that is over 16.5 hours per week , the reply from one of the famous people when told this was " i am not giving it back i have worked for it " this deems the point that all benefits would also be taken away from the claimant.
Very interesting stuff me thinks !
