Its not your "style" to be on welfare? LOL please don't make me LAUGH, why on Earth do you pay into the tax system then? Huh? In my last temporary
job, for 6 months I was taxed £140 each slip, £840 together, jobless for 2 months I've took £318 ish? I don't feel guitly!!
I back this thread 100%... After being jobless for nearly 2 months, I FINALLY found, and got a position as apprentice receptionist at the Chamber of
Commerce. Operative words there being APPRENTICE and FINALLY!
Do you know what's happened in the UK? Do you know the government have actually PHASHED out regualr jobs? Do you know how?
It was and is, quite the scandal, they TOLD everyone at the job center it was MANDATORY to work 40 hours unpaid work exsperience OR there benefit (of
£53-£67 pw) will be STOPPED.... They got thousands of us slaves to do these courses for BIG companies.... For it to be LATER revealed that they were
NOT mandatory. They tried hiding and editting their guidelines online and all sorts!
THEN you will find, anything that WAS a job as been convieniently RENAMED as an "Apprenticeship" so they can pay you *£2.30* an hour!!
E.g: Apprentice customer service
Apprentice Floor assistant!!!
What the hell? Apprentice ships should be reserved for skilled trades only!
Most apprenticeships offer a fixed rate of £75 each week, for 40 hours of your life, precisly £8 pounds better than than the job seekers benefit!
(For those age 25 and above, us younguns don't even see that much!)
What does £8 get you? 2 days on the bus!!
I find my self wondering how I'm going to survive on this apprenticeship, when bus fair will cost me almost £20 each week, minus my £25 keep each
week... That will leave me £30 pounds.
I can quickly say goodbye to my aspirations of getting a little motor soon, AND leaving home, and going on any holidays, infact can I even afford a
hair cut next week??? Can I afford to keep my cat? What about those new work shirts I needed?
Ohh noo... Not to worry, because there's loads of jobs out there aren't there???!!! That's what I thought!
Now... Let's hunt down the bankers and MPs and take this world back!
ETA: ill also take a bash at guessing your American? Alpologies if I'm wrong, but instead of hating on the welfare recievers, why don't you put that
much energy into protesting against the federal reserve? The day that bank came into existence, by means of a conpiratory plot on jekkyl island was
the day American history was already wrote!
Heck you've even had 3 presisdents assasinated for trying to warn the public about that bank, and for trying to break away from it,
So get off your high f*ckin horse and be a true patriot!
Ignorant people make my blood boil!
