They ruin lives. Let’s ruin their day: Contact The Workfare Bosses

seetecFrom Boycott Workfare

A mysterious source has revealed the mobile numbers for some of the top executives profiting from forced unpaid work at Seetec.

This workfare company pockets over £400 for every person sent on Mandatory Work Activity while claimants retain only their Jobseekers’ Allowance of £286.80 for 4 weeks’ work. These executives are currently pushing for more people to be sanctioned. They are helping push ever increasing numbers of people into hunger and destitution. These are the executives – whose wages are paid solely by the taxpayer – who are bidding for even more of your money from the state, to force people into workfare.

Seetec has the contract for delivering Mandatory Work Activity in London and East England and has numerous contracts for the disastrous Work Programme. We’ve already heard they’re not big fans of Boycott Workfare, complaining that placements are more difficult to find as a result of your campaigning!

One in five people sent on Mandatory Work Activity has their benefits stopped. Sanctions can now last for up to three years. These managers ruin people’s lives on an industrial scale. We think pointing this out to them might just ruin their day:

Graham Martin, Chief Operating Director at Seetec – 07773 773102

Andrew Emerson, Executive Director at Seetec – 07977 002278

Mark Smith, Operational Director for Mandatory Work Activity, 07870 244087

Please contact these Seetec bosses and help make sure they can’t go on ignoring the consequences of their workfare profiteering.

Top tips:

  • Why not highlight your concern about the jobs that are being replaced, the fact volunteering is being undermined or the devastating impact of sanctions?
  • If you don’t want them to call you back, you can dial 141 first.
  • No credit? You could try an online free text service or there’s always email!
  • They’re paid by the public, so it’s totally legitimate for the public to contact them with our concerns.

Please remember that making threatening or obscene phone calls is a criminal offence.

Please spread the word!

    Oh why oh why are they making people jump through hoops. Dehumanize and number people, debase, and make it intolerably unbearable through their deliberate, impenetrable, inaccessible systematic imbrogliac shit! Deceptive and cunning in their twisted ,warped machinations, though ultimately and karmically the conniving cunsters will fail.

  7. “Daddy, tell me again about your work?”

    “I get paid to make sure other people force other people (who I’ll never meet, thank God) to jump pointlessly through hoops. That’s it.

    “It sounds a bit ‘strange’. Maybe I can do a job like yours when I grow up?”

    “Oh, you don’t need to be grown up in this line of work – you just have to pretend. You do need a complete failure of the imagination and to be lacking in concern and humanity. (It’s about being able to kick people (hard) when they’re down & using bullying tactics – that kind of thing”).

    “Isn’t ‘Professional Bullying’ something only cowardly, inadequate people would do? Is it awkward explaining it at dinner parties?”.

    “Of course not! Officially, it’s not ‘Bullying & kicking people (hard) when they’re down’. It’s known (in the trade) as ‘Ensuring Mandatory Work Activity Compliance – or ‘preventing people from wasting their time on (pointless/grown up) activities like looking for work’. It’s all in the phrasing and terminology. But, enough about me – I see you’ve just decided to carry out an extra 2 hours homework/night … A very good decision – you’re guaranteed a place in the family home for every week that you complete the extra hours (just show evidence to your personal adviser – I mean, your mother, or me). You’ll also continue to receive your weekly pocket money (& no deductions) for every week you comply. Any more questions?”.

    They are scum. WPP do nothing or close to nothing for us. WE should get the £400 (more if disabled).

  9. something survived...

    And the threatening calls from DWP to jobseekers are not illegal???

  10. TEXT the greedy scumbags at SEETEC.
