People on Benefits who are fit to work - should work

Those who are receiving benefits and are fit to do some work should be utilised for jobs such as painting huts on the steam railway and MER lines; cleaning up litter etc and thus they are working for their benefit. It may soon encourage them to find a job they would prefer doing! Young offenders should also be utilised in this way as part of sign posting them towards discipline and hard work. If Government are to encourage cycling to work schemes, first there should be proper cycle tracks created as some of the roads in the IOM - even main ones - are narrow and dangerous.  An example is the lady killed in Kirk Michael village.  Hard core could be laid on the old railway tracks as one of the jobs for those on probation; young offenders; those out of work who are fit to do something for the Government money they are given each week.
