Households where no one has ever worked doubles

UK - The number of homes where no one has ever worked has doubled in little more than a decade.There are now nearly 300,000 homes where no one has had a job in their lives, and more than 300,000 children living in families where no one knows what it is like to go out to work. These numbers have more than doubled in the years since Labour came to power. Surveys do not count the numbers of individuals involved. But there are likely to be around 700,000 men, women and children who have no everyday experience of anyone going out to work. Families with no history of the habit of work are those most likely to be involved in crime and disorder and whose children are most likely slip into truancy, drug abuse, crime and single parenthood.  More
