Unemployment in Ireland

QUALIFIED solicitors and accountants have been applying for some of the 25 positions that have been advertised at the refurbished Supermacs fast food restaurant in Kilkenny.
Supermacs human resources manager, Jacintha Greene told the Kilkenny People that due to the calibre of the people applying, compiling a shortlist had become “a bit of a nightmare.”
She said that she had received applications from people with masters level qualifications in law and finance, even qualified solicitors and accountants.
There was a similar scene filmed for a 1985/86/87 news report, I recall, with a law graduate looking for a job in the [then] new McDonalds on the Navan Road in Cabra.

Are we back to those days again


Augusts’ Live Register figures are a lie !

Augusts’ Live Register

Official figures show that the number of people on the Live Register rose again last month, but the increases were not as big as in July.
The Central Statistics Office said the number of people signing on, when adjusted for seasonal factors, was up 2,500 from July to 455,000.
A breakdown showed that women accounted for around 70% of the increase in August.
so the headlines to day from RTE News.ie

But these figures are of course doctored, the CSO is a government body and they are posting figures that have been “approver” by the crooks in the government
They conveniently forget to count the as many as 60,000 thousand of X self-employed that are now languishing in no man’s land a kind of scrapheap that these onetime enterprising individuals who put their hard earned money into a business idea and created jobs for many thousands of workers are now dispacted to this scrapheap.

This is  the thank  the X self-employed get from this and every government this country has ever had
No wonder we had a culture of people sitting on the dole queues, been an entrepreneur in this country is asking to be screwed by every government agency in the state every day you remain in business
With 65% of all jobs in the service industry the state needs people to become entrepreneurs this activity is not the kind of work the multi nationals get into and everyone knows home grown is always best
To-days unemployed figures is a damning indictment on the current government handling of the economic collapse of this country brought about by their own incompetence
These figures sends a clear message to the people of Ireland and that is the current political system is dead, bankrupt, corrupt and incapable of bring about sustained economic expansion for the betterment of all our citizens, no it is a system that generates a class of people that are above the rest of us and are not accountable for their criminal actions and do not work for the interest of the greater community but rather promote their own self-interests
If we are going to stop this system from destroying us all we need to radically change the political system in favour of a more transparent and accountable one that is based on new laws and systems of disclosure that suite our modern society and is not subject to the whims of individual ministers or top civil servants.
All data requested under FOI should be free and should be automatically published on the web
All expenses and all expenditure of the elected TD;s must be available to scrutiny by any member of the public period!
All this to be on one independent web portal (Independent of government influence) and the withholding of any such information should automatically disqualify any guilty member of the Dail and such a member should no longer qualify to be member again
These laws should be protected by a new act in the Irish constitution
writing this I see we have such a long way to go !

I wouldn’t be buying just yet !

This video doesn’t exist

First video Irish minimum wage .

2nd video Irish unemployment

I had to play the videos three times and the story they tell is compelling even if it is not the story one wants to hear!

The fact is we are just too expensive a country to do business in and with .If these figures are correct and I have no data proving otherwise!

I suspect we will have to expect another two years or more of house deflation to bring affordability

Back to the ordinary average workers wages (in line with the rest of Europe)  

Thus bringing average house prices here in Ireland to 60,000 thousand Euros .These videos show me that the Irish Government are in the process of bring down the national average industrial wage let’s say to 25,000 Euro ,the banks will only offer mortgages now of 2.5 times annual wage so this brings the value of the average max mum lone the banks will give to 62,500 Euro .there’s you average house price and that’s where we are heading so if you are in the market for a home I wouldn’t be buying just yet !
