What is missing from the picture is a body that would actually go in and examine just how successful or should I say effective many of these agencies are, in terms of helping people.

Many of them exist just to fill out paperwork, yet do little to actually help you, they are service, not action. Too much duplication of the same thing, in which those trying to access services are sent out on an endless trip filling out paperwork and the fact the many of the people working in these agencies lack the skills that are necessary for many of those accessing services.

Can someone please explain how someone who was a receptionist, has the skills necessary to be telling people about work, occupatonal health and safety, employment standards, workers rights in general. In most cases they do not care about your rights as a worker. This person do not even know what the term living wage meant. In person's mind minimum wage meant living wage.

So why are we funding this agency?
