Difficult one this isn\’t it?
Because of course the disabled (Oh Lord, better say differently abled, eh?) do indeed deserve our support. There but for an accident of genetics, mutation or foetal development go any one of us. Such outcomes which depend upon pure blind chance yes, it is right that we all club together, those of us who got the lucky tickets to aid those who didn\’t.
On average, each Remploy worker is subsidised by the government by £25,000 a year.
Is this the best way to do it? £25k a year is a tad over median income. That\’s a pretty hefty subsidy to a job……a job which doesn\’t pay median income.
And one more thing. How much industrial power do people receiving such subsidies have? In which case, what\’s the point of the strike?
