Three Months Without Pay

From February to April… or May… or June.

The Project administers a Government Expanded Public Works Programme in the local area, covering their own workers and about 100 other unemployed people, all working for the benefit of the community – and in theory leading to fulltime jobs.  They are paid about £60-65pm, typically half the household’s total income, but for some their only income.  The programme runs for nine months, so there is no pay for February, March and April – and no guarantee either of re-employment in May or that the scheme will be operational again by May.
