[quote:Anonymous Coward 36089752:MV8yMTY2MjYzXzM2NjIyNTI5Xzk1NzNFQjQx] this is a 1:1 copy of the new german 'Arbeitslosengeld II' which was introduced in 2005 Jobcenter, sanctions, same shit :damned: [quote:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartz_concept#Hartz_IV]The Hartz IV reform was voted in by the Bundestag on December 16, 2003 and by the Bundesrat on July 9, 2004; taking effect by January 1, 2005. This part of the reform brought together the former unemployment benefits for long term unemployed ('Arbeitslosenhilfe') and the welfare benefits ('Sozialhilfe'), leaving them both at approximately the lower level of the former 'Sozialhilfe'. The current (September 2009) level for a single person is €374 per month (known as the Regelsatz, raised to €382 per month beginning 2013) plus the cost of 'adequate' housing and health care. Couples can receive benefits for each partner including their children. Prior to 2005, between 12 and 36 months (depending upon the claimant's age and work history) of their full unemployment benefit (60 to 67% of the previous net salary) were followed by Arbeitslosenhilfe (unemployment assistance, 53 to 57% of the last net salary). Since 2008, eligibility for the full unemployment benefit (renamed Arbeitslosengeld in 2005 and commonly referred to as Arbeitslosengeld I in everyday German to contrast it with the lower benefits discussed below), has been restricted to 12 months in general, 15 months for those aged 50 or older, 18 months for those 55 or older and 24 months for those 58 or older. This is now followed by (usually much lower) Arbeitslosengeld II (Hartz IV) benefits if the claimant meets the requirements (see next paragraph).[/quote] [/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.
