Sell, Sell, Sell! Maximus Share Prices Could Tumble After Welfare To Work Scandal Rocks Australia

share-collapse1A damning documentary exposing the shoddy behaviour of Maximus and the welfare-to-work sector in Australia could lead to a drop in the company’s share price according to one stockmarlet analyst.

The programme, produced by ABC (and still viewable here), tells a story which will be familiar to all those in the UK forced to attend outsourced schemes such as Iain Duncan Smith’s Work Programme.  Claimants had their benefits stopped for no reason, signatures on paperwork were faked and the most marginalised claimants were parked – meaning abandoned completely by the companies who saw no profit in helping them.  Maximus dominate the welfare-to-work sector in Australia, and have several contracts running similar schemes in the UK.

According to an analyst on finance website Seeking Alpha, Maximus earn 10% of their revenue in Australia and that could now be under threat due to a ‘short term negative news cycle’.  They haven’t fucking seen anything yet.

Tomorrow (2nd March 2015) over 30 towns and cities in the UK will hold protests against the company due to their upcoming involvement in the despised Work Capability Assessment (WCA).  These are the shoddy tests used to strip benefits from sick and disabled people by declaring them ‘fit for work’.  Previous contractor Atos were chased out of the assessments after their corporate reputation was destroyed by five years of ferocious campaigning by claimants.  Maximus take over this week.

The DWP think the main problem with the WCA is how it is perceived.  Amusingly new contractors Maximus boasted they would not face protests like their predecessors because they were going to carry out the assessments in a ‘timely manner’.  Speaking to the BBC  a representative of the company said: “There is a need to better explain to people that they’re not coming to an exam, they’re coming to an interview.”

They must think we are fucking idiots.  The stated intention of the WCA, when it was first launched by Labour in 2008, was to strip out of work sickness benefits from one million people.  No amount of scatter cushions in assessment centres or nicely worded letters will change that.  Just like Atos, Maximus have been  employed to stop people’s benefits and everybody knows it.  And just like Atos, that process will lead to suicides, deterioration in people’s health and desperate poverty.

The Work Capability Assessment is based on three flawed assumptions.  The first is the ludicrous medical consensus which claims that work is good for you in almost any circumstances despite evidence which shows poor quality jobs can be worse for your health than unemployment.  The second is that there is plenty of work to go round if people just try hard enough, yet there are only 700,000 vacancies currently available and just short of two million unemployed people desperate for a job – a figure which does not include and additional two and a half million sickness benefit claimants.  And the third and perhaps most toxic is that large numbers of people on out of work sickness or disability benefits are scroungers, workshy, fraudulent or faking their health condition.

The UK does not have significantly more people on out of work sickness or disability benefits than countries with comparable economies.  Every single claimant has already been signed off as unable to work by their own GP – a pre-condition of claiming sickness benefits.  Most sickness benefit claims are temporary, when people get better they leave benefits and go back to work.  The amount of fraud in the system is tiny because it’s just not worth the risk of faking an illness and risking increasingly severe criminal penalties for the sake of an extra £30 odd quid a week compared to Jobseeker’s Allowance.

Because the entire process is based on lies, these assessments cannot be reformed, improved, or made fair.  The WCA is driving people to despair and even their deaths in some tragic cases, all to save trivial amounts of money.  It needs to be scrapped, immediately.  Since neither of the main politial parties are prepared to do that it needs to be made unprofitable.  That is all that sinister corporate bastards like Maximus understand.  And it can be made unprofitable, as Atos recently found out to their cost.  So let’s do it again. Relentlessly and starting tomorrow.

  3. Reblogged this on Christopher John Ball and commented:
    Well, well, well… but who is really surprised? See you at the demo at Maximus HQ, London on Monday 2nd March

  4. let’s be honest if any company is fishing for contracts in our country for the so called welfare to work sphere then most who win these contracts are hardly the most intelligent of companies. You would have thought someone would have gone over the books ,asked people on these schemes first before giving them the contract in the U.K …..I think who ever signed that contact was signed by Hans Christopher Anderson and counter signed by Willie Wonker .
    And they call us benefit scroungers !

    • Rosemarie,

      Lets not forget that whoever signed for this Drivel got/will get a nice little Bonus… Maybe even some Shares on the side [not that the shares will be worth anything if the scheme collapses…]

  5. We have approx. the same amount of real job vacancies, but three times as many unemployed; it makes you think, if they have approx. 80% of their paperwork being manipulated with some kind of fraud, just how much fraud is going on in the workfare schemes over here? Think Emma wots her name and she is only one person from one company. The sooner these corrupt workfare schemes are done away with, the sooner we could save the country billions

  6. Am looking forward to the collapse of this and ALL the ‘providers’ of CWP and the Work Programme!

    • Yes, roll on May 7th. We must make sure the Tories won’t get back in power for a very, very long time. Hopefully an incoming Old Labour administration will never ever revive Bliar’s original invention: ATOS’ work capability nonsense.

      • wildswimmerpete.
        The only way to be sure the Tories are kicked out, is to vote Labour. Labour need to bring the likes of Dennis Skinner to the forefront for a start. If enough disabled, sick, unemployed, underemployed, low paid and those on workfare did vote Labour, the message would be unmistakable.

        • The only way to get an Old Labour government is to vote tactically and bring in real socialists into a supply and confidence coalition that shuts the Tories out.

          Because at the moment, we have the situation with so few coming out to vote that the Tories will still rule even if Labour gets a couple of more seats. That happened in the 1970s with Daily Mirrors headings of Labour surge but Tories still in command.

          There is a way to make Labour back into socialist.

          • The Labour Party authored welfare reform – there is no way they are going to strike the reforms. The biggest misconception in modern British politics is that the Labour Party is the champion of social security and the unemployed.

That’s not the same as proving a 100% cure. Grow up and face reality..’ and i posted some evidence that is not good enough for you, as it’s not independent…

                  it’s for people to read and judge for themselves why the home office decided to dump his work, him, and the parkhurst prison governor (his sponsor) and blocking all chance of this work being repeated by others in a clinical setting, (as far as i’m aware it has never been repeated?)….it has worked for me and i know several other people who claim it has worked for them, but i can’t prove it has… his work in parkhurst prison was the experiment….it was verifiably successful…and never to be repeated….can you honestly see science setting up an experiment to prove and measure emotional recovery? does science even acknowledge the existence and power of emotions…measuring the impacts and healing outcomes of emotional injuries caused by abuse would be almost impossible
                  what would the blind or placebo be?…unknowable by anyone other than the victim who is the crime scene….and i say it works….one can look @ a physical would and say it has healed…it can’t be done with emotional injuries only the victim can tell….wow! that feels better!

                  I asked for evidence, not proof. YOU claimed that proof exists, but now you can’t even find the smallest scrap of evidence!

                • Of course, it was inevitable that you would run away. That’s because your arguments have no credibility or basis in reality, just your irrational blind belief. Never mind, there are countless other religious people who have the same mindless attitude, but most of them admit that it’s just their belief talking.

                • “can you honestly see science setting up an experiment to prove and measure emotional recovery?” – YES
                  “does science even acknowledge the existence and power of emotions” – YES, of course it does!
                  “measuring the impacts and healing outcomes of emotional injuries caused by abuse would be almost impossible” – NO, it wouldn’t.
                  “what would the blind or placebo be?” – You’re thinking of drug trials.

                  You seem to want to reject the whole idea of scientific evidence-based thinking and process. Why? After all, without it you would probably be dead!

  12. No-one is ever going to make the WCA effective as a means of assessing whether someone is fit to work as it does not consider a person’s illness or disability, work or an individual’s ability to do it. It is patently not an assessment of someone’s ability to work but an assessment of the ability to perform a random limited selection of basic life skills which can then be used as an excuse not to pay social security benefits.

    Unless and until the eligibility for illness and disability benefits is based on what is best for the individual’s health and well-being and not on a notional ability to “do work” the system will fail those it is intended to support.

    • … notional ability to “do work” the system will fail those it is intended to support.

      The WCA system is not failing as it is NOT intended to support claimants, the ultimate objective is to undermine the state welfare system as a pathway for private health insurance.

    Johnny Void here looks at the scandal in Australia caused by a documentary that revealed the massive fraudulent sanctioning of claimants by Maximus. Mr Void then goes to state that this is only the beginning. With none of the parties willing to tackle the quackery and sheer cruel stupidity of the Welfare-to-Work tests, the only course open to protestors is to make it unprofitable. He therefore urges everyone to support today’s day of action against Maximus up and down the country.

    As for the Work Capability Test, he points out that it was brought in by Bliar in 2008 in order to strip sickness and disability benefit from one million people. No amount of PR spin is going to change this. He also shows that its based on a number of false premises, most notably that work is always good for mental health – it isn’t; that Britain has a higher level of sick people than other nations – we don’t; and that there are enough jobs to go round if people only worked hard. There aren’t.

    Maximus need to be shown that people are sick of the work programme, and that they will be treated no better than Atos, because they are no better than Atos. Support the day of action against them today.

      “THE DEPARTMENT OF WORKS AND PENSIONS, TORTURE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING OF THE MOST VULNERABLE”

      Benefit sanctions can plunge families into financial crisis, hunger, and dependency on food banks for up to half a year, far longer than the period for which they have had payments stopped, according to a new study.

      The study, Cheshire Hunger looked in detail at the reasons why people had been given food bank vouchers and estimated the length of time they would be dependent on food aid.

      It adds to a growing body of evidence directly linking welfare reforms with food bank use, and comes as a coalition of major churches call for an overhaul of the “inhumane” sanctions system.

      Overall, it found problems with social security benefit payments accounted for nearly half (47%) of referrals. The bulk of these problems related to administrative delays, benefit sanctions and incapacity benefit stoppages.

    “IS A SANCTION A DEATH THREAT?”
    ………………….WITH THOUSANDS ALREADY DEAD, ARE THE DWP PUSHING FOR A WORLD RECORD?

    The cost to job seekers of having their benefit payments stopped has rocketed by 3,000% under the Tory-led coalition Government, new figures show.

    Analysis of Government figures by the PCS union reveals that the value of Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) payments sanctioned in the year to September 2014 was £355 million, compared to just £11 million in 2009/2010.

    PCS says the shocking figure explains why benefit sanctions have been directly linked to a surge in food bank users.

    The food bank charity Trussell Trust supported more than 913,000 people with three-days worth of emergency food in 2013/14.

    The new research from PCS is published ahead of a Dispatches investigation to be broadcast this evening into the government’s sanctions regime.

      “Under this government the sanctions system has become a cruel maze in which it is all too easy for claimants to lose cash for minor breaches of rules and random decisions.

      “Even those who have contributed for years and are working hard to get a new job can find themselves sanctioned, and driven to food banks.

      “There are now huge holes in the welfare safety net that whole families are falling through.

      “And Jobcentre staff have been forced to moved away from providing positive help to meeting sanctions targets in a culture that is too often about bullying both frontline staff and claimants.”

    • … can we expect Rory Stewart volunteering to go serve as cannon fodder in war with Russia… thought not. Why do these cunts who are always banging the War Drum never send them or theirs to be killed and maimed for “Queen & Country” and all that shite? Cunts!

          Too right, GEOFF! A Russian IDS would just install free water dispensers* for jobseekers’ use only and fill them with radioactive, none of the faffing around with sanctions.

      Propaganda works wonders and all that but you would think it would be increasingly difficult to drum up support for a war with Russia. The proles are a lot more widely travelled now. A lot of us have lived, worked and travelled to places such as Russia, Germany. Poland…, as well as the UK being chock-a-block with the citizens of Russia, Germany, Poland who live, work, and visit here. We have come to realise that they are basically the same as ourselves. It fucking politicians, cunts like war-monger Churchill, war criminal Blair who started an illegal and that evil cunt Thatcher who murdered those poor Argentinian conscripts on the General Belgrano who start wars. It is politicians, armaments manufacturers and bankers who ‘fund’ both sides of conflicts who benefit and profit from war; to quote the banker Lord Rothschild: “It is when blood is flowing on the streets when I make the most money.” The man/woman in the streets of Russian have no more interest in ‘going to war’ than the man/woman in the street of the UK unless they are a fucktard UKIP voter or drive the white van, and NOBODY has any desire to be ROBBED of THEIR life.

    “22 VETERAN SUICIDES PER DAY IN THE GOOD OLD, US OF A”

    There’s no doubt that the rising veteran suicide rate is one of the most serious issues currently being discussed in the news. With various reports focusing on different statistics and emphasizing different areas of concern, however, it can be difficult to determine precisely what information is being conveyed. What is the suicide rate among military veterans, and how have these numbers been compiled?

    The most commonly cited figures in reference to veteran suicide rates are those of 22 per day, or one every 65 minutes. These numbers come from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) in their February 2013 report on veteran suicide rates in the United States. The study, which analyzed suicide data from 1999 to 2010, determined that although “the percentage of all suicides identified as Veteran declined between the years 1999-2003 and has remained comparatively constant over recent years,” the total number of deaths by suicide had increased by almost 11 percent from 2007 to 2010. The rate of suicide among veterans had also increased during this time period.

  38. Its obscene, especially when you look at the money wasted on poorly negotiated contracts for DWP, ie the current IT contract with HP. Approx cost? £100m/ month if you can even conceive of that amount of money! Meanwhile the confused and vulnerable foot the bill. Shameful.

  39. Reblogged this on wheelsofpoliticalsteel and commented:
    This is why the #WCA is not working & nor will those who this scheme is supposed to help!
    This company and others like ATOS & Capita are operating all over the world & are ruining lives in every country they get lucrative contracts in.
