JobCentre Staff Say They Are ‘Depressed’ Because Of Sanctioning
I was fortunate enough to find lucrative employment last September.
My experience of DWP staff is that they are thick, some are well meaning and some are sadistic; but mostly thick and sadistic.
Some were disillusioned; they gave up reading my work efforts, which they are required to do and merely said, presented with four A4 sheets of job applications “sign here” after a cursory glance at my ‘job sheet’. It could have been several pages copied from the dictionary, for all they knew!
They mostly (the sadistic ones) disliked me because I could argue my case at least at their level of intelligence, often above.

I fear for my future, for at 57 years old I am unlikely to find such lucrative employment again. I fear yet more for my children’s future, who will likel;y see a lifetime of this despotic regime.
