Regardless of your political persuasion, perhaps we can all agree that unemployment is a problem that can crush the spirit and cause all sorts of personal and social unrest. So, isn’t it bizarre that the British Government is doing all it can to make it even harder for those without a job to get one?
BRITAIN is advertising 800,000 jobs to people in the European Union creating more competition for the unemployed at home, it was revealed yesterday.
Almost six in every 10 vacancies on a taxpayer-funded EU website are in the UK, raising questions about the Government’s approach to unemployment. Germany, the economy of which is the EU’s largest, is second with 267,517 job advertisements, a third fewer.
The total number of vacancies on EURES, the European job mobility portal, as of yesterday was 1,450,490 – so UK jobs up for grabs total more than those in other EU states put together.
Do we REALLY lack all the skills of these 800,000? If so, what exactly has been happening in Education for decades? It’s a perfect storm really, we have a dumbed down pool of wannabe workers some of whom would rather they never worked, we have rising welfare bills to fund them that cannot be funded, and we have an open borders approach to employment whereby the last people to stand a chance to even get a job are British.
