Jobcentre Plus Caught Lying About Number of Job Vacancies
With the ongoing loophole that allows the country’s top retail chains to employ staff without paying them, it should come as no surprise that Jobcentre Plus have just been caught falsifying the number of jobs available.
Seems DWP is up to its old tricks again. On the day the DWP Press Office announces a “Rise in employment and vacancies shows a stabilising labour market” the 9621 vacancies for that day showed some major concerns especially how Jobcentre Plus is using the job database as a spamming ground for work placements, job search sessions and misc “opportunities”.
The latest figures also show that there are more jobs in the economy. With 476,000 vacancies available at any one time, this is a rise of 11,000 on the three months to October 2011.
So how much of these 476,000 “vacancies” are real?
No matter how many snobby BBC shows or Daily Mail articles talk about the work-shy, it doesn’t change the fact that the record unemployment in the UK is down to the corrupt financial system and its destruction of the economy, not laziness. If the departments tasked to get people back in to work can’t even tell the truth then nothing is going to change.
