So the government can trot out statistics that say 'we've got [insert large number] of people off JSA in the last year'
How to make the JobCentre better: set targets of 'get x people into work'. It's that simple but they won't do it because there's a possibility of failure.
My point proven. People are obsessed with pointless stats that are actually misleading. The example I gave to Brian might not be totally accurate, but it's along those kind of lines.
The last line is spot on too.
It's such a vicious cycle it's untrue.
I do actually feel for some of the workers there, as I don't think they're scum enough to actually take pleasure out of messing people's lives around, but maybe they're just worried they'll end up on the same slippery slope?
I'm sorry but I have seen absolutely nothing to suggest that the job market has improved in the past few years. Not from my point of view anyway. It's the same bullshit I had before.
I don't know how England is, but worse or better, turning into America is a mistake. Same with Canada, and we are better than the US.
Not like i've liked living here to begin with. I much rather live in Peru in all honesty
Which I guess brings up another topic. The Pacific South American countries never get any credit, but they are the best South American countries. Chile being the best.
Peru is safer than half South American countries. We are better than Argentina, Venezuela, and Brazil. We are also better than the landlocked countries in terms of politics.
Colombia has improved. There aren't nearly as many terrorists as there once were.
Not too sure about Ecuador.
Argentina, and Venezuela are the 2 countries in South America in most trouble at the moment. Mostly due to governments. Same with Paraguay but they've always been in trouble. The only Atlantic country better than us is Uruguay.
Argentina and Brazil get all the credit because of tourism but the reality is the Pacific side of South America is better.
Sorry for just jumping to a completely new topic aha
It's all matter of opinion.
It must be opinion as there are far too many variables to decide if a country is 'better'.
It's your own take. What's better, a country that's quite wealthy but overall pretty dull, or one that struggles financially but actually has a real vibe about it? Depends what you value in life.
For what it's worth I recently read that Chile is the safest country in South America. Given the behaviour of some of their fans at the World Cup I was quite surprised
