    Anyone is just a bit of bad luck away from never working again - a car crash, workplace accident or nasty disease and you could be out of action for the rest of your life.

    I agree with you. But as I said above, if you take rent, council tax and travel to work into account you could be talking another £500-700 so pretty much break even. Not a lot of incentive to do a job you hate. It's not for me but I can sort of see why people wouldn't take a min wage job.

    Depends on their circumstances, £800 a week is ridiculous, I work nights and go in Bramahs in morning and same people are there every day I go in, I know a few of em and they claim benefits, one even claims somet called esa cos he's alcohol dependant.
