In an accident at work, Peter avoided serious injury, but was told not to come back. He went to sign on and says, “I’d worked all my life, but they treated me as if I was cheating the system. They didn’t even know me.” He applied for five to six jobs per day, but when he wanted to move to be with his seriously ill mother, and said he would look for work there, the job centre ruled this an ‘inappropriate search’. He was sanctioned for a month and got into debt. When he moved, and signed on at his new job centre, he was sanctioned again for not attending a meeting with an adviser back at his old job centre.
