OK. I lied. it should have said 'all in this together part 4 [or is it 5?]'.



There is a company called 'Remploy'. It's publicly funded to specifically employ disabled workers. It's the biggest employer of the disabled workers in The UK.

Times are hard, so Remploy has had it's budget cut. So the company has launched a redundancy programme in order to cut it's workforce by half.

Remploy has the added problem that one of the products it manufactures [furniture for schools] has been hit by the coalition cuts to the schools budget. Making it unable to reach what it called 'challenging targets'.

A couple of months ago the [mostly able bodied] bosses of this publicly funded company shared a 1.2 million bonus pot.

In 2009 the same bosses gave themselves bonuses from a 1.7 million bonus pot.

In 2009 Remploy closed down it's 'employment supported workshops' and 2,500 disabled workers lost their jobs.

Remploy was asked by the trade unions to justify these bonuses.

Remploy replied.
the bonuses were necessary because they 'needed to retain the best people available and ensure that they are focused on meeting and exceeding their targets'

In the last 3 years Remploy failed to reach any of their targets.

Neither entrepreneurial nor innovative, exploitive yet still government-backed and publicly funded.

Another chuckle for the weekend. In England, the price of prescriptions is to raise by 20p per article to 7.40, while those in Wales and Scotland get theirs free. No offence to our Celtic neighbours but if their govt's can do that, why can't ours?

Thankfully I'm not on any meds and dad's are free due to his age but there's many who are in the situation of either affording the prescriptions or feeding/clothing/heating themselves adequately.

Patronising tits :madder:

It really is time there was a law passed to stop these ridiculous bonuses being rewarded when some unfortunate staff within the same company/organisation are losing their livelihoods :sad:

this makes me sick.
I work with adults with disabilities in a day centre, and the government cuts are hugely affecting these guys too. We have been told that the council will assess each individual's needs and they will be categorised into low, substantial and critical. The individuals deemed as low and substantial will completely lose there service.

Yet, they keep services that are completely useless e.g. we have what they call 'wellbeing champions' at work- these people (and there's lots of them) tell you how to eat well and live healthily- all common sense really and a complete insult to us and the poor individuals that are going to be stuck at home, probably not exercising and probably overeating!
