stop those on benefits getting lazy or losing self respect

Comment 7th July 2010

so there are those who think it is their 'right' to unemployment benefits.  yes if you have paid your fair share of TAX and NI.  

those on unemployment benefit should, say 2 to 3 days a week, work in their local hospitals, be it cleaning, help in the cafe or if their qualifications allow, reception/office or part of the medical team.  

work for their local council for these days doing anything.. gardening, manning phones, office etc..

in a nutshell, work those few days in the public sector where there will eventually  be cuts.

For those who want to work will have something to get up for in the morning, keep their pride, keep their minds active and could lead to a permanent employment, give ideas for them to perhaps move into a different field or just give ideas for those who have no ideas.

it think it paramount that this should form part of qualifying for benefits for those who cannot be bothered to look for work and never have worked and perhaps it will help them turn over a leaf and start respecting themselves and others.

there are jobs out there, may be not enough for everyone, but one particular programme proved that although the British may moan that foreigners have stolen their jobs, it seems that this is not the case.  I laughed at how lazy the English were and gave up too easily and some could not even be bothered to turn up or were late.  this is typical.  we need to stop this.

I am British born but not English.  i am in a position to pick employees and have found time and again that generally the English seriously lack in everything compared to 'foreigners'.  It is sad to say that the English are far behind with their own language and basic maths.  I have even on a few occasions employed English just to balance out the staff and give them a chance to prove themselves but each time I have been let down.  I even have given them a few chances to improve and they promised it would not happen again, but it does.

Why does this matter?

it is important for the country and its future.  What happened to self respect and pride.

England is laughed at by many countries.  Too soft.

As mentioned, I am not English but was born here and am now 44 years old with 4 children.  I do not want my children to have the same attitude to work and life as a lot of the English of their age do.

Many may say 'go back to your own country' and at times I wish I could.  I worked out myself that I was not acedemic and hated studying so worked extra hard to get where I am. 

I failed terribly at school as I had no support from my parents and went to a  not very good school but managed to turn my life around.  I was given a chance career wise and I will never forget it and it is something i want to do for those who are in the shoes I once was and especially for the English as we are in England and as I am living and working here I do feel it my duty to do my bit for the country.  I have never received any unemployment benefits and was fortunate to be out of work for just one month and I hated it.  I spent every day applying for any job I thought i was capable of doing (and I do not mean that I was fussy that I thought a cleaning job was beneath me) and my pile of copy applications was 5 inches thick!

This responsibility falls on parents too.  Breaking the cycle.  Guidance.
