Unemployment Set to Keep Rising.

with 3 comments

Unemployment in the UK is set to hit 2.75 million by November next year as the economic recovery fails to boost the jobs market, research has claimed. (More here).

The ‘Flexible New Deal’ is to be followed by Work for Benefits. We have mentioned that East Anglia will be a Pilot area. This will be followed by the rest of the country. With these figures the signs are that a vast number of people are going to end up under the thumb of private Companies, Charities, Voluntary Organisations. Full-time. Dependent on their Good Will. Of the ‘good practice’ of the likes of a4e and Working Links. Not that, charities and ‘voluntary groups’ are exactly famous for this in regard to their own staff. As the trade unions know only too well.

  1. I was on the New Deal last Christmas, you name it we had it experianced tradesmen, engineers, computer technicians, health care assistants, county archaeologists.
    Nearly a year later neither I or anyone else I have since bumped into has had any employment whatsoever and to make things worse we have had to watch many of the firms we hoped would employ us when things picked up go bust in the mean time.
