Jobcentre Surreal

Here are some photos I shot at the Kilburn Unemployed Workers Group (KUWG) weekly action outside Kilburn jobcentre (they meet every Thursday, see the site for details).

The what?

Really? Kilburn Jobcentre takes the piss

 

The Jocentre Plus at Kilburn is having a laugh. Read more at Kate Belgrave asking what exactly are jobcentres for which happens to be about this particular jobcentre.

There is some surreal shit here too

Out of order Out of order...

 

Watching you

Watching me watching you

 

Kate has written about this remarkable group of people and the incredible help and support they offer, so do a search and read more.

And finally, just in case it hasn't clicked, read the following sign. It doesn't of course say who gets paid for the work, just 'making work pay'.  Which of course, sounds chillingly like a play on 'work makes free'

Making work pay... for whom?

Making work pay...

 

I'm thinking workfare, sanctions and the whole shitfest surrounding benefits at the moment. Really, they should put that sign over the door and be done with it.
