Intent of Workfare
Workfare benefits are targeted at lower-income workers with less household support, with higher benefits for older workers. Workfare can comprise up to an extra 30 per cent of the worker’s monthly income.
Workfare and Progressive Wage Model (PWM)
Workfare and Progressive Wage Model (PWM), together with many other support measures, have uplifted low-wage workers while keeping employment levels high and unemployment levels low. They are a clear expression of our social solidarity and by no means inferior to a minimum wage.
