Reason 12: For Every 30 People in a Dole Queue – There is Only One Job
It is claimed that unemployment is a ‘life-style’ choice – that people are choosing to stay on the dole rather than take up a job. Not only is this insulting to hundreds of thousands who find themselves without a job – it attempts to disguise the real problem behind unemployment.
There is only one job vacancy for every 30 people who are unemployed.
The Government may blame the unemployed for being unemployed – but the fact is that there for every 30 people standing in a dole queue, there is only one job available. For the other 29, there is only the prospect of continuing unemployment.
Why should we march? Because unemployment is not a ‘life-style’ choice – it is an economic reality created by the Government’s austerity policies.
