The Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, has said today that days where people could take benefits and do nothing for them are over.
He's also made an individual hit out at Birmingham graduate Cait Reilly, who challenged having to work at Poundland for free.
Duncan Smith says that she was being paid jobseeker's allowance by the taxpayer to do this.
The governments flagship back-to-work scheme was ruled legally flawed earlier this month, when Cait Reilly won her case at the European Convention on Human Rights.
The Work and Pensions Secretary is now implementing emergency regulations to deal with the Court of Appeal ruling.
A judge has rejected graduate Cait Reilly's claim that a scheme requiring her to work for free breached human rights laws banning slavery.
A Birmingham University graduate, challenging a Government scheme that she says forced her to work for free in Poundland, arrives in court.
