Catch 22
brazier Wrote:... One thought - will we see a return to schemes where the unemployed yet again get seconded out to commercial companies of all types for no pay except subsistence - great for training people up, if they're willing to do that, and definitely cheap for the price - but does anyone want to go down that road again? Different times - surely?

We did discuss this a few weeks back...(October 23rd 'Archaeologists against the cuts' - thread) industrial tribunal has recently ruled that 'volunteer' or 'intern' work, unless it is for a government body or registered charity, should be paid at the minimum wage....So the short answer, unless there is a change in the law, is 'No we won't see a return to such schemes'.....but I imagine that its only a matter of time before somewhere finds a way around the tribunal ruling!!
With peace and consolation hath dismist, And calm of mind all passion spent...
