Because when the markets pick up again and jobs become more plentiful people will be happy to give up benefits instead of staying on them because life is easier on benefits .

What most don't seem to understand is that the government accept that the recession is going to go on for a good few years more which means that the benefit bill will only rise and tax receipts will fall and borrowing will increase .IDS has to look at this and make sure we can afford a benefits system in 4,5,6 years time or however long it takes .The choice is a reduced benefit system for everyone now or practically no benefit system in 10yrs time
