Unemployment Benefit

The truth is that many people are scared to talk about controversial issues in case they are shunned or made to feel uncomfortable.

Our great nation invented the UK ‘benefit’ scheme to provide a little additional help those that were temporarily out of work. Unfortunately over the years this scheme has become expected by the people and no longer thought of as a benefit but a right!

Many people now see the ‘benefit’ scheme as an alternative to work and some even turn a healthy profit working the ‘benefit’ trade.

Why do the working population allow this to happen? Is it thought of as fair that the working population, that in some cases are earning less than someone working the ‘benefit’ scheme, pay taxes to pay salaries to the ones that have made a decision not to work?

I do understand that there are also people on the ‘benefit’ scheme that are in true need of the support it offers but there are also many that have been conditioned to expect a pay day out of the pockets of others.

One documentary recently interviewed a lady on the ‘benefit’ scheme that commented, quote “I wouldn’t accept a job unless it paid all my bills and gave me £500 a week spare cash.” What a ridiculous statement. That means that this lady, who was presumably low skilled, was expecting a salary on the scale of a highly skilled person and company directors before she was prepared to give up working the ‘benefit’ scheme.

Where’s reality gone? Is anyone really surprised our country is in so much debt and we’re all having to feel the strain? Any politician has got a very difficult task to solve issues like this and it needs a brave and bold approach to make the difficult, but necessary changes.
