Social Protection Minister Joan Burton unveiled the Youth Guarantee Fund aimed at getting young people into work….But included in it is a sneaky cut to jobseeker’s benefit if a young person doesn’t sign on for JobBridge or accept a placement – which has been branded cheap labour It will also slash the dole if the unemployed person doesn’t “register their CV on ‘recommended jobs websites”.
Ms Burton said these sanctions are only used in “the fairly limited number of cases where people fail to engage”.
