What a prick! Ignore the recession, might as well just stand there with his fingers in his ears shouting la la la.

My Mrs moved down here summer last year and had no problem getting a job. In fact, she got one job then after about a month she got a better paid one.

Work is there, but I think some people are looking for THE job rather than any job that'll pay the bills and get them off benefits.

There always has been. It's just that people only want to wait out for the job they really want. This is fair enough but expect to have to do something you don't particularly like whilst looking for the job you want.

The professionally unemployed should be forced back to work. If they're working then at least they're not at home reproducing and causing hassle.

..and before the usual suspects arrive, I do acknowledge that not all the long term benefit claimants are criminals or idiots but a significant proportion of them are.

Load of bollox, I went to the bru, last week, there was three jobs I could have took, two were professional management jobs, classified under warehousing jobs, I wouldn't have had a hells chance of getting, the other was for a night-shift job I would have had no way of getting too.

If you ask for help getting a job, ie resit your forklift test etc, your told to **** off.

So this abundence of jobs ae both Full Time(40+ hrs) and pay a mortgage? Thought not, now **** off and stop pissing on our backs and telling us it's raining eh!
Very good, Now tell us what experience and qualifications you have that put you in the wage bracket that will pay a mortgage.

Or are you like my SiL? Moans jobs open to him don't pay enough but rather neglects his rather meagre academic record?

I can see this thread being binned .... workfare for the workshy should be government policy.
The thread will only be binned because, as so far, one person is being deliberately offensive, presumably in an effort to cause such binnage. Are we expecting more to turn too and attempt to sink this thread?

So a Mcjob for 16hrs a week pays a mortgage it seems........no? Then why bother taking it? These are the jobs IDS is talking shit about.

Yes, we've gathered you can use agressive and abuse language. Now, what is your particular beef about finding a 40hr job that will pay a mortgage? Based on the average mortgage, that would suggest you're looking at jobs paying in excess of £35k. No point arguing those jobs don't exist if you're not in that market anyway and a 16hr a week McJob is the best job you're qualified for.

Really? And you know this how? Further, if you took the time to read the article, IDS says this, '..........said that unemployment would be significantly lower if jobless workers could be better-matched to vacancies.'

Not exactly an earth shattering observation, granted, but the simple truths seldom are.

Either way, a McJob has to be better than no job.

Neither of which pay a mortgage.

Somewhat shortsighted aren't you, same as IDS it seems.

I did pass it, it requires a refresher course for insurance reasons, I happened to lose my job just before I was due to refresh it..
