Work Testing Mothers and Sick Starts October

Work Testing for Mothers on the DPB and those of us on the Invalids Benefits begins in October, with WINZ selecting a forty three thousand of us to start off with.
The cruelty and absurdity of this new law can be seen in the following story where a single mother is already absolutely overwhelmed with caring for her family, and cannot possibly take on a paid job without seriously hurting that family. But does the government care?

Manurewa mother Lisa Bowden wants to work but she faces the classic solo parent's problem - who will look after the children?
