As far as the UK stats go (I have no insight on the job market anywhere else), I think they are pretty accurate. Full time vacancies are up, companies
are recruiting again. I know this for two reasons, firstly I am trying to find a full time job for the missus and secondly, the company I work for,
which previously had a recruitment freeze is now hiring again.
The problem is with people in the 18-25 age bracket. Those jobless figures are up, but to be honest this isn't surprising. Young people tend to be
less skilled and experienced. Add into that mix that alot of youngsters in the UK are bone idle and poorly qualified after messing up their GCSE's.
A few years ago, Prince Charles got into hot water because he said youngsters need to be realistic and realise they can't all be superstar rappers or
footballersm which was interpreted by the left-wing press as a "know your place" comment. Personally, I think he was spot on.
My brother falls within that age group, where he and every one of his mates reckons their the next best thing. Couple that with the fact they call in
sick after a heavy night out every week, take Monday's off ebcause they can't be arsed and when they do show up to work, they treat it as a social
club and bugger about, rather than do the job they are being paid to do.
