Just look at them... just get a bloody job will you and stop scrounging benefits from the hard working people.

 

I think I'll keep that link to post on the Mail's comment page next time they post an article about those on benefits not wanting jobs.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I was made redundant last year fortunately I managed to find a decent job after 5 months but the period being out of work was a real eye opener. The whole employment game is now set around agencies and zero hour contracts paying the absolute minimum wage. The story doesn't suprise me at all in Hull they reckon there are at least 80 people on average chasing every advertised job.

I feel bad for anyone looking for work atm, especially when they're desperate enough to chase every job out there, including zero hours. I was out of work for 18 months after leaving uni and it was the worst time of my life. I just kept applying for every job under the sun, including cleaning and stacking shelves, but got nowhere. Spent most of my time working for free and volunteering just to boost my cv. Thankfully I managed to find employment, but I'm not looking forward to have to find jobs again when it ends.

Tough times. I'm glad I'm not staring out again.
