    Let’s look at workfare.

    The Department for Work and Pensions orders a benefit claimant to report for a placement on the basis that he is to work for his benefits.

    The claimant asks, “Is this an employed earner’s employment and therefore for a wage?”

    The DWP says, “No.”

    The claimant says, “In that case my fee is £9 per hour under a contract for services.”

    Discuss the implications of workfare for the property rights of workfarers.
