Electronics specialist John was made redundant from a temporary job and then instructed by the job centre, under the Work Programme, to do the same job, at the same firm, for six months with no pay. He had already been working on minimum wage and refuses, on principle, to do the same job unpaid. Now he has been sanctioned, living on a monthly pension of £149, and managing with little food and no heating.
