Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Clutches of Maximus

MAXIMUS

When Atos walked away from the government contract to run the “fitness for work” tests, or Work Capability Assessments, some thought that things would improve for the many sick and disabled people suffering at their hands. There was never a chance of this government doing the sensible and decent thing, and scrapping the WCA and starting from scratch, but maybe the next company chosen to run these tests might have a bit of integrity.

Not a fucking chance.

The company tipped to succeed Atos, Maximus, has an abysmal record in the USA.

I won’t list any of the examples of this company’s corruption; I don’t need to. Others have done the work for me, so the government cannot claim the information is difficult to find. One useful, but by no means exhaustive, list can be found at Pride’s Purge. Click on that link, and you’ll find a list of just some of Maximus’s lawbreaking.

It’s almost as if the DWP, and Iain Duncan Smith, have deliberately sought out the most criminally-minded company they could find to pick on disabled people.

  1. Hi Dave.

    How can I contact you? I would like to talk to you about the colorized image of Jules Verne.

    Thanks!

    I don’t think ‘almost’ comes into it to be honest 😀
    They want this to continue ad infinitum. There is never a point where they will think enough is enough. Even with an election on the Horizon they haven’t got the sense to back off. They will never admit they were wrong and so simply have to pick someoe qually as bad.
    ….. and iif any of you you believe that ATOS were setting the rules, you are plain daft.
