A 19 year old pregnant woman has been sanctioned by Ashton Jobcentre for telling the truth! When she was interviewed by B&Q for an unpaid placement she told them she was pregnant.

FOR TELLING THE TRUTH. This is the same Jobcentre which employs G4S security guards who threaten claimants. For further details see:- here
