If you are able, work for your benefits!

This petition had 27 supporters

My idea is simple, if someone is on benefits and they are fit and able to work then they should work a few hours a week for the community to earn their benefits. 

When I was on benefits I felt like the biggest waste of space ever and I would have done anything to feel like I was worth something in my community! I sat around the house waiting for someone to get back to me after I had applied for countless jobs. If I'd had the option I'd sooner be walking around picking litter than sat on my arse in the house doing nothing with my time. 

Many local councils are under funded and I think it would be a great idea to get able bodied benefit claimants to do something similar to community service to receive their benefits! There could even be a small top up on the benefit to help the claimant.

If you think this is a good idea please sign this! Help people make a difference in your community:)
