There's a crowd close to me where one partner will shortly be left go and they're realising that if both of them jacked it in they would prob work out better off ... and actually considering this ....Woman wont take job in /Ikea paying 9.40euro an hour as she's better off on dole. This country is ********************ed
If you leave a job you automatically are subjected to a 9 week disallowance. As a minimum this should also apply to refusing a job.Exactly. But will our politicians have the cojones to suggest that this should be put it place? The one that does will get my vote.
and she's right !Woman wont take job in /Ikea paying 9.40euro an hour as she's better off on dole. This country is ********************ed
It's very, very short-sighted for anyone to make a straight comparison between what they'd earn working and what they'd get on the dole.
Because when the dole and other benefits are cut (and they will have to be - even with Labour in government), all that time out of work will make it even harder to get employment then.
Also, even with a minimum wage job in the likes of IKEA, there's a chance of internal promotion or moving on to another, better paid, retail job. You don't get that when unemployed.
She should not be a burden on the state. She presumably doesn't have the skills or qualifications to get a job that pays more. So she should either return to education or take the job. She could in theory make her way to management level and in that way earn more.and she's right !
the jobs on the till which is for spotty teenages doing a night course to get a REAL job.
NOT for raising two kids. its VERY telling that IKEA didnt bother their arse telling people what the wage was till after the fact and it seems to be a case of trying to optimise on a recession to drive down wages.
ben dunne is paying 14 euro an hour to people to make sandwiches FFS.
those are the jobs she should be going for.
classic hatchet job by joe and RTE to demonise the social welfare claimants. my advice to the woman would be to pass on the job for someone else who doesnt have two dependants to take up which will probably result in em renting a two bed apt with one of their mates to make a life for themselves. i.e it'd be worth their while.
