Communication to the Salvation Army re: Workfar[c]e

leave a comment »

I have just sent this communication to the Salvation Army in condemnation of their collusion with Workfar[c]e-

Dear Sally,

Almost 2,000 years ago, Christians- amongst others were enslaved by their Roman masters the world over- that is those that didn’t die as a direct result of Roman policy.

I wonder, do you see any parallels with Workfar[c]e, the free labour (enslavement) opportunity the government is offering employers, and which I believe you are actively taking advantage of; the same government that is causing the deaths of disabled people by forcing them into such schemes?

I wonder, as a Christian organisation if you can see the immorality of your decision to support a scheme that takes people out of voluntary work they wish to do, with relevance to the career they wish to follow to be put into a scheme they have no interest in?

Maybe you should rescind your charitable status, and join our great capitalist organisations in the scramble for ever greater profits at the expense of ordinary men and women- and as a direct consequence, their children.

I wonder, sitting writing this what your Jesus would have said? Perhaps Timothy 5:18 “For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.”


Paul Higgins

Maybe you would like to send a message too-
