Sharp rise in Live Register figures

Sharp rise in Live Register figures

The number of people on the Live Register in July climbed by 8,500 to 452,500.
Read the report
The Central Statistics Office said this was the biggest rise in the seasonally adjusted figure for a year.
Women accounted for more than half of the increase.
The unadjusted figure showed that there were 466,800 people signing on, an increase of almost 14,000 from June.
The CSO said the unemployment rate rose to 13.7%, from 13.4%, in June.
The data also shows that the largest number of people signing on were professionals, who made up more than a fifth.
The next largest increase was in the category of clerical and secretarial workers.
The Live Register includes some part-time, seasonal and casual workers.
It is not designed to measure unemployment, though it is regarded as the most up-to-date indicator of the state of the jobs market.
Jobs crisis
Minister for Social Protection Éamon Ó Cuív said that while the figures are at a very high level, it was worth noting that the figures rose more slowly in July than in June.
He said it showed that the Government’s hard choices had brought stability to the economy.
On long-term unemployment, he said two out of every three unemployed people leave the Live Register within six months of signing on.
However, Labour’s Willie Penrose said the figures proved that solving the jobs crisis had dropped to the bottom of the Government’s agenda.
He said the Fianna Fáil-Green Party Government was like ‘a deer caught in the headlights’, when it came to tackling the problem.
Sinn Féin’s Arthur Morgan said the prognosis for recovery was ‘dire’.
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions said the Government’s policies of massive cuts were deflating the economy.
The statement concluded that further deep cuts in the Budget and panic reactions to sell-off the family silver would only exacerbate the crisis.
NCB Stockbrokers economist Brian Devine described the data as discouraging.
While small business lobby group ISME said the true extent of people losing jobs was obscured by emigration.
Its chief executive Mark Fielding said a whole generation of young education Irish were becoming economic migrants.
Redundancies
Separate figures from the Department of Enterprise, Trade & Innovation show that redundancies are running below last year’s levels, though the figures remain high compared with 2
5,298 lay-offs were notified to the Department in July, down 15.7% from the same month last year.
For the first seven months of the year, redundancies are down almost 20% from the same period last year at 39,105.
This is still, however, not much less than the 40,000 recorded in the whole of 2008.

Comment:
A message from someone dumped on the scrap-heap
No matter what way you try to spin out of these figures Mr. Ó Cuív they are still not the true figures which I believe to be in and around 675,000
You and the rest of the current government squatters and the rest of the political establishment should hang your collective heads in shame!
To the people of Ireland I beg you
For God sake please do not vote any of the current TD, s back into office
let’s have a complete clean sweep .

New reserve currency

This is big trouble for the USA
WASHINGTON (AP) — Regulators on Friday shut down a Nevada bank, raising to 83 the number of U.S. bank failures this year.
The 83 closures so far this year is more than double the pace set in all of 2009, which was itself a brisk year for shutdowns. By this time last year, regulators had closed 40 banks. The pace has accelerated as banks’ losses mount on loans made for commercial property and development.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. took over Nevada Security Bank, based in Reno, with $480.3 million in assets and $479.8 million in deposits. Umpqua Bank, based in Roseburg, Ore., agreed to assume the assets and deposits of the failed bank.
New reserve currency
We in Ireland are still bailing out bankrupt banks at the cost billions we don’t have causing economic depression for this and the next generation!
With 52 thousand students coming out of our universities and no jobs to go to
alone along with 100,000 people all ready left the country ,and another 53 thousand students leaving secondary education this year
How many of them are going into apprenticeships, jobs or is it emigration for the majority for them
The Unelected Cowen and his band of economic terrorists are helping the top bankers of the state live it up while the rest of us struggle to pay our monthly bills
I say let the bankrupt banks pay their own bills and allow them to fail, just like the Americans are doing in the land of Free markets
Allowing the crooks in the Dail to plunder our natural resources and the wealth of future generations is a crime I personally do not want to be responsible for, when our children ask what you did to prevent it I can show I was active in my opposition and I made a stand
What can you say you did??
It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to oppose this band of thieves we must stand up and take action
Do not just stand by and allow our country to be destroyed by the current government who have sold out to the faceless bondholders in Germany , France and England
Stand up and Fight back now!
Put yourself up for election do not give you vote to any of the current TD’s
We need new blood in the Dail and not Family dynasties
We want a general election now and we need a new community party made up of new local people from ordinary backgrounds that will work for an average wage and not clock up huge self given perks, ending up as millionaires while the rest of us struggle to pay for these perks & pensions
We need real servants of the people and not leach’s sucking the rest of us dry like some of the current shower of TD’s are doing
The next general election must end Gombeenisem for good.
Promise yourself this and we just might save Ireland!

Cowen must go now!

Cowen denies unemployment a ‘low priority’

Wednesday, 16 June 2010 11:39

Taoiseach Brian Cowen has rejected an assertion by Labour Leader Eamon Gilmore that unemployment is a low priority for the Government.

Brian Cowen said the Government had increased the number of training places for the unemployed.

He said jobs were created on the basis of a more competitive economy and predicted net employment creation next year on the basis of current Government strategy.

Eamon Gilmore said the situation was hopelessly depressing for people out of work.

He described as ‘socially unsustainable’ the situation in which one in three young men was on the dole.

Mr Gilmore criticised what he referred to as the Government’s residual theory of employment and encouraged the Taoiseach to come up with a strategy to get the unemployed back to work.

Comment

As far as I can see this is exactly the case unelected Taoiseach Cowen has done nothing to help the unemployed it is as if they just don’t exist in his world

A world of big bank bonus, mistrial allowances and perks and giving a did out to the golden circle.

Pulling strokes and looking after your cronies (The gutless greens who see no problem supporting the very gangsters who have destroyed our country) the confidence expressed in Cowen yesterday

The country is clearly in the shits because this unelected Taoiseach guilty of economic treason

survives a no confidence vote and the oppositions leader has to face treachery from his own front bench

The Unemployed don’t expect the get anything from Cowen or the Greens anytime soon

They are too busy looking after the big developers and Bankers and squabbling over the plumb jobs for themselves and their laciest.

People of Ireland wake up for God sake!

New unemployment stats

Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev

Has wrote an excellent report on the latest unemployment statistics which clearly shows the Governments figures and expectations to be flawed to say the least

Take a look see! Link http://www.trueeconomics.blogspot.com/

The number of people signing on to the Live Register rose by 6,600 in May, the Central Statistics Office said, with the unemployment rate rising to 13.7 per cent.

The latest increase brings the seasonally adjusted total number of people receiving unemployment benefits to 439,100. The Live Register includes people who work part-time, and seasonal and casual workers entitled to Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit.

Observation Constantin!

There are approx 45,000 to 65,000 previously self employed, that are now unemployed but do not receive any unemployment benefits.

 As far as I know only those that are in receipt of benefits are classified as unemployed, and thus these people do not appear to be included in the statistics.

 

What if this oil spill was off the coast of Ireland?

 

If this had happened in Irish waters the Government would have told the nation that we were all responsible and we must all put our shoulder to the wheel and help stop this well from leaking any more of our precious oil .They would also blame the single mothers and the Unemployed for using up badly needed financial resources that would otherwise be spent plugging the well.

A call for a national bond would be made and everyone in the work would be made pay a new oil cleanup carbon tax levy and the Unions would tell the members that we have no choice as this is the only option for the country

Gormley would employ a few green pals to count all the dead fish and Ryan would call for a national day of mourning .Brian lenihan would go on national TV to tell us we must tighten out collative belts yet another two notches!
Bertie Ahern would look for another “Dig out” from his pals to help pay his levy!
Having got it he would then seek an exemption from the revenue on the grounds he was a struggling artist!
The Government would then blame the protesters of shell to sea for the disaster and have them all thrown into jail!

ICTU accuses Govt of ‘failing’ unemployed

Saturday, 1 May 2010 11:15

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions has accused the Government of ignoring the jobs crisis, and failing the 435,000 people currently out of work.

In a May Day statement, ICTU General Secretary David Begg said Government inaction had ensured that long-term unemployment and emigration were central features of Irish life again.

Mr Begg said the entire apparatus of Government seemed ‘uttery transfixed’ by the banking crisis, while those who had lost their jobs had seen their benefits cut.

‘There appears to be a bottomless pit for the senior bankers that caused this mess – and the jobless are told to wait in line, literally,’ he said.

‘For there to be any sense of justice or of a burden being shared, Government must move with urgency to give the Jobs Crisis equal billing with the banking crisis,’ he added

 

Comment Mr.Begg

First you should get your figures right the total number of unemployed is not 435,000

You just took this number from the government’s doctored figures!

The real figures is more like 650,000 people plus 120,000 on useless FAS courses,

Of which when finished will only dump these unfortunate people back on to the Dole queues!

The Government figures do not give the up to date numbers. They do not count people who are unemployed but do not receive the jobseekers allowance. In other words if you are in receipt of some other payment you are not included in the Dole stats,

You are not in the same stats if you were self-employed and are now unemployed (Like me)

There are approximately 65 thousand of such persons, that’s without counting the already 65,000 that have left the country

Then we come to the “Students” that are now back to education (Mature) approx 27,000 in all not to mention the 53,000 that will be available for work and have no jobs to go to when they finish at the end of may (this school year)

 

Where have you and your Unions concern for the Unemployed been all this time (the last two years)

While the government have been dumping billions into the bankrupt toxic banks you and the other unions in this state have been more concerned with your own union members pay while the unemployed have had to undergo in some cases a 50% deduction

The once self employed (approx 65 thousand people) have been just dumped on to the scrapheap

With no entitlements of any kind given to them!

I belong to this group and after 27 years of paying my taxes and prsi and the levies for myself and my staff (up to 8 persons) I too have found myself without any support of any kind.

Where was your concern when we needed it?

Your expression of concern for the unemployed ring hallow to all 565,000 thousand of us

your outburst smacks of self interests!

we need Jobs not waffle!

Unemployed unite and take to the streets !


 

we need reform now!

The current Irish Government are responsible for the financial disaster the country is in,
With the establishment of NAMA the Government is trying to socialize the enormous losses that the Banks and their Developer buddies have encored.
Corruption is rife and now a new monster burocratic system is being created, where X politicians will have jobs for life and the same corrupt developers will be able to manipulate the housing market all over again
While the people are being robbed of their homes, savings, pensions, and education for their children, that same gangsters are running the country
This has to stop!
Join the CAB to-day and get things moving
Come on! Get active in your own area now!
We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.
