There have been plenty of examples of people turning down work because doing an extra day would mean their benefits are lost or reduced - that suggests the balance isn't right; I'm all for treating those in hardship fairly, but not to breed an entitlement/reliance culture.

      I will also put my tin hat on here...

      i think if you are earning enough to not be eligible for benefits, then it's only right you don't get them. In the UK I was in the 40 percent tax bracket and didn't grudge paying it, purely because my life as pretty comfortable anyway. Equally, I think I could survive fine here without any benefits, but they do help with Kate not working at all. When she's working we are unlikely to earn much, if any benefits which is fair and I won't complain.

      i don't really buy this whole 'undeserving poor' thing either. In the UK there are endless stories of benefit scrounges, but in reality there are not huge numbers, and they cost a tiny fraction of the tax that could be claimed on big business tax dodges.
