No Rights Without Responsibility: Rebalancing the welfare state

Synopsis

No Rights Without Responsibility argues that conditions on benefit claimants should be increased so that they have to spend more time each week looking for a job. With research from the DWP finding that the average jobseeker currently spends just one hour a day looking for work, the study recommends that current work search requirements should be expanded to make sure that claimants can stay in - or get into - the habits of a normal working lifestyle.
