Why! Does the benefit system not take mental health serious still?
After visiting the job center in Reading today i came away from there in floods of tears and very worried. The guy i spoke to just wasn’t listening to me at all. Doesn’t matter that i had a sick note from my DR for my mental health and severe pain in my foot.
Everything i said about the sick note he said it was no excuse for not searching for a job or applying. Also if a job comes up then i should be ready to take it. I tried to explain that working in retail with a very painful foot was not easy. Apparently if your working on the shop floor you can ask for a chair to sit on or ask the company for extra breaks. As if Asda, Tesco, lidl or any of the other places are going to do this for their employees.
