Should welfare be cut for those people who refuse to take up jobs?

Should welfare be cut from people who refuse to take jobs?

New figures released paint a very grim picture of entitlement in Ireland.

in 2012 1,500 people were fined €44 a week from their social welfare payments for refusing to take up jobs offered to them. Today figures for 2017 were released and they are shocking. They now show that 16 THOUSAND people refused to take jobs offered to them.

This is a startling increase. Niall asked if the Goverment has created a welfare state where people feel they are entitled to a state wage without having to work.

What do you think? Should people have their welfare payments reduced or even stopped if they refuse to take jobs?
