It would be funny if it was fiction. Tragically, it's not. I think my favourite part is:
"Giving evidence, senior civil servant Jennifer Bradley confirmed that numerous charities and businesses were receiving cash payments as an incentive to take on the unemployed."

So it's not even free labour for companies. The government are paying them to be given free work! And the only people who are losing out are everyone on benefits, everyone who might have wanted to volunteer outside of the programme, and everyone whose job is low enough down the hierarchy that it can be replaced with forced labour instead.
