Revealed: the High Street names that used benefits claimants as free labour

The "Torah Party" Has Always Viewed The Sick And Unemployed as "Resources" To Be Exploited.
The names of hundreds of major companies and leading British charities who used a benefits scheme to employ people without paying them have been revealed after the government lost a four-year legal battle to protect their identities. Well-known high street firms were among more than 500 organisations who used the free labour of welfare claimants, after they were forced to take unpaid work under rules brought in by David Cameron's Coalition government. Their names were revealed after the Court of Appeal ruled against the Department for Work and Pension's attempt to keep them a secret – at an estimated cost to the taxpayer of tens of thousands of pounds in legal fees.
