In this second episode, the experiment is reversed as the claimants spend time with the taxpayers. Getting up early, working alongside them through long shifts and seeing the effects on family life, the claimants get a taste of the reality of working life. They must decide if they think that work is worth it.

With the battle lines drawn between 'scroungers' and 'strivers', this series brings the two sides together to discover if any of them can agree.
