Labour has promised to fight welfare cuts and produced its own analysis suggesting that Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA) had risen by less than earnings over the past decade.
Shadow work and pensions secretary Liam Byrne said longer-term figures showed JSA had risen by 32 per cent since 2002/3 while average earnings rose 36 per cent over that time.
Iain Duncan Smith has given the green light to a £14 billion cut to tax credits that's pushing millions of working families into poverty and now means thousands of part-time workers are better off on benefits.
