Low-paid work is little benefit to homeless



According to research by the New Economics Foundation, when taking into account the practical and emotional risks of moving off benefits and into insecure or low-paid work, the incentives for homeless people to enter work disappear. The report recommends the government looks at paying incentives to homeless people to test whether sustained employment and savings can be made, and suggests that employers should review the use of casual labour. The report says that government could save �£425 million a year helping homeless into more secure forms of employment.
