Now I'm on the fence with this one.
See when the benefit system was first set up, it was set up to help people over who found themselves out of work. In the last 10-15 years, its been
used as a substitute for employment. JSA isn't that much, but you'd be shocked that there are many I know that after having paid out all of their
bills have far less in their pocket to spend on food etc than JSA provides.
The real dent is when you're in social housing, unemployed and have kids, that's when the benefits rack up no end.
Now, there is no point talking about abuse of benefits, as the way the system is set up, its as almost as if abuse is totally acceptable.
I could go on about the needless foreign aid, the wars, the massive influx in immigrants, the central bankers, the bent politicians, but lets go on
With regards to unpaid work, listen, you're getting money through benefits! Do you want to sit there and do nothing and get paid for it? At least if
its unpaid, its still something you can add to your CV! Now, if you don't like it, get a paid job, at one stage I had two, my mum had three part time
jobs! There are jobs out there as long as you're willing to do anything and everything, yes you might have to work all the hours, yes it might be
graft, but that's life and that's what the rest of us have to do, or have had to do.
The benefit system needs to go back to helping workers and if you're out of work to temporaily help the person, get them in to a paid job and then
boost massively their income with benefit money! This is what needs to be done, child benefit needs to be cut and pumped in to subsidising child care!
I moan about foreigners and there are the fair share that come here to rinse, but seriously, the mentality of growing minority of my countrymen and
women is just a joke! Where is the work ethic? Where has the sense to get out there and do what needs to be done to get paid rather than begging to
the state to finance their lifestyle without contributing? Excuse after excuse, yes the central bankers are wrecking us, yes government is cutting
everything up, but you have a responsiblity to yourself and possibly a family if you have one, to do what ever it is you have to do to make ends
The vast majority of countries don't have benefits like we have, its hard, its tough, I've been there and still there but I don't place any
responsibility of my family and my future in to the hands of others. Its down to me to work and get paid for it, regardless of whether I have to work
night and day. I'm sick of people whinging, get out there, work unpaid (you're getting the money in benefits) get yourself in to a paid job. It is
easier done as it is said, there are paid jobs out there, its just we seem to be becoming a nation of dreamers and beggars than realists and grafters!
