I quote myself:
There is so much unemployment around simply because here are far more people than here are jobs for them to do.
and further proof of that is some new thing they've had to invent a new word for:
700,000 Britons swell the ranks of 'underemployed'
The death of the full time job.
I actually think working a lot less hours a week is a great thing - but the lack of pay certainly isn't. Not when interest rates are set to increase, inflation is already rising, and all the banks are getting to be right dicks and squeezing their customers for every penny they can... (like so many of them haven't already had a good boost of free tax-payer's money.)
Ooooh there's trouble ahead.
