Chatting with National supporter at Bennett's Clinic

One of the women waiting at the Clinic said she wanted to talk to Paula about benefits. Interested, I asked her what about? She said she was a trainer of beneficiaries and the problem was how they wanted to keep on studying rather than taking jobs. One of our members, a student, said that since there were no jobs to go to, wasn't it wise to keep trying to develop skills that might help us to find a decent job? I was amazed at this woman's attitude towards her own students. She seemed to view them like very bad children who needed to be firmly controlled.
