I never unload on people like this but frankly I need it right now. Hope you don't mind. Heh...
Someone explain to me how and why its so easy for benefit cheats to get money, when normal law-abiding guys like me--who genuinely aren't able to get a job because business in this country is that broken--are unable to get a bloody penny.
So here is it. I've been trying to find full time employment since leaving university last summer (yes, I've been trying for over a sodding year now). It hasn't happened, aside from my family throwing the odd sympathy job my way (which I'm greatful for thankfully, it paid for six months rent). Finally I decided enough is enough. I signed up for a little thing the government does called Job Seeker's Allowance. Hugely demoralising standing in a line with the dregs of society, but it's money I'm entitled to. Right?
Well apparently something about myself makes it ridiculously difficult to either get a job, or get benefits meant to help me, you know, keep my house and actually eat in the mean time. I thought for once perhaps there would be a scheme in this country that would help someone like me. Over my life, I've done literally everything I've been told with regards to getting a job. Volunteer, make your cv look good, go to university employers will snap you up...
It doesn't work.
And you know what, when I finally do get paid any arrears I have via the JSA I bet I'll be working for £15k per annum any way. What a joke. JSA is made for people in situations like me.
Urgh. They're just TRYING to make it difficult aren't they.
