Most people think unemployed welfare recipients should be helped to find jobs rather than forced into community work, a survey says. Only 19 per cent of respondents supported a government proposal to force recipients into community jobs with the aim of getting them used to working. The survey, conducted by the Democratic Party, interviewed more than 500 respondents about the government review of the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance scheme. More than 52 per cent urged the administration to provide the recipients with training or simply help them find jobs. Respondents were divided on whether allowances for three-member families should be cut. Although 25 per cent said the $5,015 allowance was insufficient, 29 per cent said it was enough.
