52-year old Paul has worked as a painter and decorator and sheet-metal worker, but was made redundant last year. He thought standing at the side of the road with a home-made sign, advertising himself for work, would show just how much he wanted a job. He stood with his mobile phone number on a board that read ‘All I want for Xmas is a job’. But the Job Centre stopped his Unemployment Benefit because he failed to prove to staff that he was actively looking for work.
