    It’s amazing isn’t it, Every time I’ve found myself out of work for whatever reason I’ve gone out and found a job of whatever description to tide me over, many of them I hated, some I did short term and some over a longer period. but I did them to pay the bills and keep a roof over my head, I always found work somewhere.

    This is over a working career of 42 years.

    Yet over that period of time I watched countless people claiming dole for much of their lives whining that they can’t find work. How exactly have I managed to go out and keep finding work time and time again while they haven’t?. I think we all know the answer to that question don’t we?

    I have very little sympathy for those whiners and would like to see a graduated benefit system tailored proportionately to the time that claiments have actually spent in work paying tax and NI to the time that they are allowed to continue to claim benefits.

    I think that faced with no more dole money many of the long term benefit claiments will miraculously find work of some description in order to eat and live just like I and many others have over the years.

      It’s much easier to find work if you’ve got a good work history. If you don’t get a good start to adult life, it can be extremely difficult to catch up.
