Secrets Of The Workhouse

After watching this I feel some insight into Tory plans. Demonise the poor, cut benefits to make them poorer. 


"In Victorian society the workhouse represented the underbelly of society, where anyone who was poor, homeless, unemployed or ill was sent to live.
 
With no benefits system in place, destitute people were either left to starve on the streets or forced to submit themselves to the harsh conditions of the workhouse where they worked ten hours a day doing menial tasks such as breaking rocks up or picking apart ropes."
