An international company is helping people who’ve lost their jobs to migration, after the UK’s government blocked a new scheme that would have given people the chance to get a second chance.
The International Rescue Committee said it was donating $50,000 to help pay for the new jobless benefit, called the ‘Journey to Work’, for people who had been laid off.
The company is called Wages for Work, and was set up by Wages International, which is based in the US.
It was founded in 2013, but is still based in Hong Kong.
The organisation has already helped over 10,000 people get their first job since the Brexit vote.
“It is a great way for the UK government to show its commitment to workers’ rights, particularly the right to stay on after their employment is terminated,” said Maria Haggard, the organisation’s CEO.
“They can’t ignore that, and I think they’re going to have to.”
Wages has a website and a video on Facebook that features the company’s CEO explaining the benefits.
“If you were laid off, or you’ve been laid-off from your job, we’ll help you with your transition to a new, paid, and secure job,” the video says.
The video ends with the words “We’ll help.”
Mr Haggart said the jobless benefits were “an important step in the right direction” for those on low wages.
“This is a big step forward, and will help many people who are in desperate need to get back on their feet,” he said.
We know it will help thousands of people, but I think we need to see more, and get more help.” “
The jobless assistance we are offering is a huge step in that direction.
We know it will help thousands of people, but I think we need to see more, and get more help.”
The Jobcentre Plus website says it can help people “if they’ve lost a job, or if they’ve been paid a wage below the national minimum wage, or a job that is not as secure as the job they were previously working for.”
However, the company says it will only work with people who have applied for the job.
“We don’t know how many people are applying, but it is very important that all of us work together to ensure that these people are able to get on their way to getting a job,” Mr Hagard said.
The Government says the new benefits are to help “help people who lost their job”.
The Government has also said that it will not be changing the jobseeker’s allowance to allow more people to work, as promised by the Leave campaign.
“Workers’ rights have always been a priority for the Government and it is important that the UK stays a member of the EU,” a spokesperson said.
However, Ms Haggards said she was “very concerned” by the fact that the Government had refused to accept the recommendation that the new workfare benefits be changed to include a more generous jobseek.
“I don’t think the Government is listening to its own workers,” she said.
Wages said it had received “thousands” of applications from people wanting the new Jobseeker Assistance Scheme, and that they had “done everything they can” to help those affected.
“Wages for work has helped people get back onto their feet in Britain and have been a source of great support for the family of two people who were unable to get into work, Ms Simeone said.
Her husband, a construction worker who was also unemployed for many years, said he was “quite happy” with the benefits, but was concerned that they would not cover his new job.”
That’s very hard to do when you’re looking after your family.””
What’s really worrying is that if they do this it will be for just one month, which will be two weeks longer than my previous job.
That’s very hard to do when you’re looking after your family.”
