A says, “In 2004 I started having back problems and had to have a lot of time off work. The company was very good to me but after two years it became apparent that my health would prevent me from continuing, so I took redundancy and went to college for five years to get new skills for a new career. While at college I had a back operation. This did not prevent me from getting my new qualifications, but I have been unable to find work. I was accepted for a job as a security guard in the job centre but I never received a start date. I live on Incapacity Benefit and own my own house, worked hard to pay for it and despise being called a shirker.”
