Gee, I wonder why they can't fill those jobs.  Looks like they need to cut taxes on the aristocracy and get rid of the NHS to motivate people to work.
/That and allow illegals to flood the country and work below minimum wage and without being a burden on the state.

If you employers want to hire, how about you get rid of stupid crap like AI blackholing of resumes and absurd position requirements?

I don't think you want to hire, I think you want to whine and ask for handouts.

DHT3: Cancel pensions! Get those lazy elderly back in the workforce!


I am okay with this as the argument seems to be applied to other parts of the workforce.

How odd. Before the referendum Remainers assured us that Brexit would lead to a huge rise in unemployment as huge numbers of jobs would be lost.

Oh well, I guess that's just yet another Remainer Project Fear lie proved wrong.

Funny, two articles above this is one showing how, now that all the free money is gone, employment applications are dramatically up.

Cause and effect anyone?  Self-correcting problem.

If you were dealing with a rational system you'd have a valid point. So much of economics is emotion, fear driven, that students of the sad "science" often resort to tarot cards or chicken entrails.

Speaking of corrections:

For years the response to "no one here wants to work under these circumstances" has been "so get some Eastern European types, they're cheaper anyway". That was dus for a correction as well. Employers get to work on improving the job conditions.

/Not to mention the employment rate for 16+ is 75%
//If they are anything like other countries they are only counting people looking for jobs as unemployed
///Surely that million people can be found by tweaking the circumstances

"The number of vacancies in the three months to August rose above one million for the first time since records began in 2001."

They only decided to start tracking available jobs in 2001?
