From food banks to property bubbles – the moral decay that blights Britain

The division between work and unemployment is no longer clear either. Is
someone sitting in a bedsit waiting for the Queen or some other
cheapskate racketeer to call, employed or unemployed? All you can
usefully say is, for the millions living on or near the minimum wage,
work can no longer bring them dignity and security. As Clark puts it:
"The poverty figures always used to report a cast-iron link with
unemployment; now a child officially classed as poor is almost twice as
likely to come from a working as a workless home."
