I have being unemployed since January last year 2009
I was told at the Dole office as I was self-employed for the past few years I was not entitled to any state benefits, no Jobseekers allowance, and I did not need to register every week.
so go and don’t bother us again attitude !
Since I do not qualify for the jobseekers allowance, it would appear that I do not show up as unemployed in the CSO stats.
So now extrapolate this fact to the approximately 65, 000 thousand or so other X self-employed people. Who lost their self support means they had.
These would be chippies, electricians, brick layers and people who have lost their own businesses
And you begin to get the real unemployment figures.
Like every other government in the world this government is fiddling the real figures
I would estimate the real unemployment figures are close to 536,000 Thousand.
The greatest scam is that I paid all my taxes and paid into the PRSI, I also paid all taxes for my staff and I end up with no entitlements!
The lesson here is don’t set up yourself in Business in Ireland
Just go out and try to get a job in the public service
There are approximately 360,000 thousand lucky people already looked after for life.
But if you take in the now subsidized financial sector, and the thousands of guanos and advisers
We must be looking at 600.000 thousand plus.
Every time you here someone talking about the good job the government is doing just ask the question who is paying their salaries, inevitably it is the taxpayers!
