Universal Credit: Get ready for more harassment and #BenefitSanctions, as Jobcentres to open on Saturdays and weekdays 8am till 8pm from November

The DWP is requiring Jobcentre Work ‘Coaches’ to work on Saturdays and Weekdays from 8am till 8pm from November. Claimants will soon get even more ‘Coach’ harassment, not just with millions and millions of Digital Nudges (“digital interventions”) via email, text and phone but mandatory requirements to attend a Jobcentre in the dark and cold nights of winter or face severe financial penalties (benefit sanctions) for not doing so.
