Look at the above infographics and it becomes very clear that for a lot of people work really doesn’t pay. Our over generous benefits are a genuine lifestyle choice for many hundreds of thousands of people. Why work when other people (taxpayers) will pay pretty you much the same money for you to be on a permanent holiday? In fact after paying for transport etc these people would be worse off if they worked.
Osborne has to fix this and the best way is by reducing benefits so that work does pay.
