Employment figures are fudged. Right now in the UK families with at least one working are among our poorest and most vulnerable.
Like the U.S. we are a gig economy, it means one person employed for 12 hours a week gets taken off the unemployment figures but are still struggling.
Looks good for the government though.
I've been slammed by my own people for this but hey ho here we go.
The British worker is arrogant and lazy in a lot of cases, I've heard tradesmen complain about foreign workers undercutting them then find out they had just priced themselves out of the job.
There is something so different about the British that they feel the world owes them. Possibly a hangover from Imperial times possibly a hangover from socialist days.
Now I could be argued with on the basis that England just totally rejected socialism and that would be correct but it brings me back to the Brit and the foreign worker. That's why they gave the most right wing party a huge majority.
And that's why the right wing are rising.
Noone is taking the employers to task re employing illegals for a fraction of the wages.
Noone is taking large corporations to task or Banks.
For some reason I cannot comprehend our country and yours think the poor are out to get them, it's all their fault and they must be crushed.
When I'm feeling better I'm taking to the streets with this, I'll find a group who is fighting for the poor and join it
