DWP guidance on £2,275 wage incentive for youth jobs in Adult [sex] Entertainment Industry [ #job2014 ]

Chapter 20 Youth Contract – Wage Incentives   #job2014
(Revised chapter 20 published. 6 January 2014 11:25am)
Acceptable Jobs within the Adult Entertainment Industry
TV camera operators for adult channels on digital TV/pornographic films, auxiliary workers in lap/pole dancing clubs, strip clubs, saunas/massage palours, web-cam operators, glamour model photographers, sale, manufacture, distribution and display of sex related products and more
“An incentive payment of up to £2,275 per young person is available to the employer [Adult [sex] Entertainment Industry] once the employee has completed 26 weeks in continuous employment (qualifying period).”
“If you chose to mandate a mandatory participant to the employment you must
undertake the relevant WP08 [benefit sanctions referral for non participation] action. If the participant is a JSA claimant you should also raise a WP10 [benefit sanctions entitlement doubt].”

Now there are handouts for massage parlour madams: “Even in the sex industry, employers are treated as ‘wealth creators’ but young people as burdens” – “ask why government intervention is necessary to make the sex industry employ young people”?

Conscientious Objection to DWP mandated Sex Industry work

When claiming benefits failure to apply for these jobs can lead to destitution benefit sanctions of up to 3 years. There would seem to be a reasonable basis for submitting to the Jobcentre a formal Conscientious Objection notification objecting to work within the Adult Entertainment Industry, such as a sample one concerning organised religion.
