    Measuring Socio-economic Background In Your Workforce: Recommended Measures For Use By Employers

    Currently only recommendations and for the civil service but with the current government, who knows...class war...

    Employers are to be encouraged to ask potential employees about where they fit in UK society and whether they see themselves as economically disadvantaged, under new plans that are likely to reignite concerns of a Tory class war.

    Job applicants would face four multiple-choice questions under plans due to be rolled out in the civil service later this year, with questions including what school a worker or job applicant attended and whether they were in receipt of free school meals.

    The Government claim the collected data will help to make workplaces for diverse and socially inclusive, but critics may argue the plans have ulterior motives and could see workers asked to divulge potentially sensitive information about their background.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    This would be greatly simplified after a few years of Corbyn.

    "Dirt poor."

    Still, we could all be dirty poor together, which is nice.

    I suspect means testing probably costs more than the meals themselves.

    If Universal credit costs £600 per application deity knows how much it costs to decide how many 47p meals people should have. If it were £200 a year to supply meals then it makes sense to just make them free.
