[quote:Anonymous Coward 5229924:MV8yMTY2MjYzXzM2NjIyMzk0X0NCQjMyODU=] protip, the job centre is a private company paid for each person they get back into work. They are only paid if you take a job found directly through them though, you know, the ones with the number you have to call from within the job centre. They have no interest in actually helping you get a job you would be good at or enjoy; they are just trying to meet quotas. As for the payment for placment scheme, yes the money sucks but I think that's the governments way of getting the long term unemployed to actually try find a job. Why work 40 hours a week for your dole when 25 hours a week in any other job would make you twice that then some. [/quote]
Here in England we have a government institution called the Job Centre where you claim unemployment benefit. Now you go here every 2 weeks, show them a list of jobs you've applied for and they give you money. But there's a catch.
The longer you stay on, the more you become their bitch. First they start inviting you to meetings with them, do a jobs search (they have no extra resources to finding a job than you do at home), these occur every month or so and they're annoying.
After a while, you get put onto a program called 'workfare' where you literally work 40 hour weeks for big chain outlets for your benefit. This works out at £1.70 per hour ($2.50) at tax payer expense. If you refuse to do this then they sanction you.
WTF. If a company needs someone, EMPLOY them you cunts.
Fucking socialists have done this.
