Hey all,

what an interesting topic, my idea is only a small contribution to the unemployment rate.

I feel our Welfare system is partly to blame. Our government have create generations of “we deserve welfare” mentality. How many of these “unemployed” actually want to work would be a good start. These people who dont want to find work believe they are entitled to the benefit and shouldnt need to work. Finding the correct number is obviously impossible but i would think at least a good 30% of our unemployeed have no intentions of finding a job.
Just to get people thinking about my point of view, how many people have been interviewed by us soloists and bigger business who just need their dole papers signed to say they turned up for an interview? Obviously not all unemployed are like this.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Hey Hobitti Bob,

Yeah you could be right with the 30% figure, it may even be higher, who really knows, But just lets say your 30% figure is correct, the figures I just saw for Feb had about 750,000 unemployed (rounded down to help my wednesday maths). So say your 33.3% (rounded up for Wednesday) is 250,000 of what you say are “we deserve it” type people. That leaves another 500,000 people who are looking for work, based on your figures above.
