well. i havent managed to sleep. i have been going oover in my head what that adviser said. and the more i think about.it the more i think she incompetent.and a liar and is quite likely setting me.up to fail. then she can sanction me for it.
apparently her daughter suffers from arthritis like me but advisor still takes.her to.school?? so her kid sudenly has osteoarthritis of her ankles does she? strange she never said anything before. adviser also.commented.on my health.how i should.be walking more.. you mean on the ankles that hurt everyday. and that i hqve to take pain pills.for. how i should be getting.more.exercise...it will help.you travel.to.these.places... sorry butwhen you are in constant pain. you minimise it.
then once again. she never listened to me aboutn travel. since.she lives.in a.city its easy to get to where i live. but to get from where i am.with a limited.bus service to another place with another limited service is hard. if i was going.to say manchster its easier as the trains run every 15 mins. where to get to the small place. the bus is once an hour now.
she stated i was resistant to change. why because the was nothing else.i can do to get.a job. i apply for.jobs via job.centre site.other sites phone agencies. she cant suggest.anything i am not doing and explaining that to her means i am resistant to change. She has now upped my aplying for jobs.to 5a week this is.the same woman who said i was applying for too many. and she will be monitoring it.
i really.feel.like.jumping in front of a car or bus or train everything i do.is wrong this is the kind of.people.in a4e. bullies and thugs and idiots
He used the government’s Work Programme, which involves about 300 voluntary organisations, as an example.
"Is this what an independent local voluntary sector should be doing?" said Curley. "Helping G4S and A4e to maximise their profits from welfare-to-work schemes? Do we really want our relationship with the state brokered for us by the private sector?"
Curley also said he was dismayed that the social care charity Turning Point and youth charity Catch22 had formed a consortium with Serco to build and run two new prisons.
off to a4e at 10.. probably will be told off for applying for too many jobs. And threatened with sanctions for doing that..
remember when i got toldoff for aplying for to many jobs. well she has upped my 3 a week to 5. and wants me to do volunteer work. unpaid forced volunteered. most of.these places wont take a chance. in training me then knowing i will leave ronce i got exp. she also doesnt understand that coming from a city to a town. is not the same as town to city. but then again she is a scouse. i have applied for paid jobsincheetham hill as travel is better. but to prescot one bus an hour and stops after 5 aNd its a volunteer job. she usedthewords barrier and didnt listen likeshe never does
does she not know about voluntary jobs. she said because i have no bills that means i have less gumption to get a job. perhaps she wants me to be in debt so i can geta job. and that a pttls qual will not get ne a job. that they are useless after a year anyway. and she will not put me forward for any training as that wont advance your career. which means she doesnt want to know. and her only option is force me to volunteer or sanction time. but only 15 hours a week as you have to do a4e as well.

Young jobseekers told to work without pay or lose unemployment benefits
Monday, 14 November 2011
However, there is no doubt that work was created. The Nazis introduced public work schemes for men who worked in the National Labour Service (Reichsarbeitsdienst or RAD). Their work would have included digging ditches on farms to assist irrigation, building the new autobahns, planting new forests etc. The men of the RAD wore a military style uniform, lived in camps near to where they were working and received only what we would term pocket money.

Lets compare being a criminal,and being unemployed.
1, you get free food, free clothing, nice warm place to live. No bills, able to sit and read or do nothing and no one will tell you what to do.
then you have being unemployed. You are called lazy, scroungers. You are blamed for all the problems of society, you have to spend hundreds more on food, on clothing, heating, You are ordered to get any job at all irregardless of if you can do it. Then you have to pay taxes, and increasing bills, when you do get a job. you pay more and more,for fuel, food and everything else.
so which would you choose..

Dr Rob Barnett, the secretary of the Liverpool Local Medical Committee (LMC), said: “I’m working in an area of high unemployment. It may be OK for the GMC in London to propose things like this but the reality here is that there are very few jobs around. If I talk to someone who has been unemployed for 18 months, and they can’t find work, then they are going to look at me like I’m an alien if I suggest they get a job.”
Where are the jobs going to come from..
The problem is, I can't find any. I've only got three or four GCSEs. So I apply for a job, they say they'll get back to me, and they almost never do. I've made 50 applications in six months, through Jobcentres, and on the internet. But I've only heard back from about five, saying: "Sorry, you haven't been successful." I haven't had any interviews. There was one for a chugging [street fundraising for charity] job, but it turned out it was on the other side of London, and so I would have spent more money on travel getting there and back than I would be earning.
