It's interesting that giving government officials that much power over your life doesn't bother you. How much can they dictate before they've gone to far? What of the companies who are not on the approved list? Do they go out of business when they loose custom?
Honestly, yes, I am. If you want their money, you definitely should justify why, even if only loosely. I wouldn't give someone money without a justifiable reason because that's my money and they want it, of course I'd need a reason. Why shouldn't the jobcentre?
