    PDF/EPUB treatmentinlithuania.co.uk Ç Love On The Dole Kindle ¹ Love On ePUB Å love pdf, dole epub, Love On kindle, Love On The Dole KindleThis isn't an easy book to read Set in the early 20th century in a part of Salford Hanky Park that many of my friends still remember the story is an extreme version of what is going on in Britain today While we may have a generous safety net for people who lose their jobs the attitude of government to those on benefit seems not to have changed The precedence of capital the economy over the rights of workers and the short termism of employers and policy makers that would rather see mass unemployment than people in work earning spending and paying taxes is key to this novel Greenwood gets into the minds of the main characters struggling to understand the endemic poverty of Hanky Park how they are exploited as apprentices and then dumped on the scrap heap when they become expensive ualified workers and how the 'boss' system works to favour the few
