I was unemployed not long back. You have to look for at least 6 jobs a week and apply for at least 3 jobs a week. You have to be willing to travel for 60 minutes each way with your own transport. If you do not do this or appear to not be willing to do this THEY WILL STOP YOUR MONEY>
i am out of work at mo & went to "Sign On" the other day & when asked what i had been doing to find work, i told her the things i do & i asked her what work there is in relation to call centre/reception data input etc, her reply absolutly "NOTHING" & there hasnt been for quite some time she said, Very worring indeed..
I drive about a 40 mile commute to work now and it's really hitting me in the pocket and I only have a 1.4 Scenic. I am thinking of getting a Yamaha YBR125cc motorbike to get to work on, as I work in the heart of Northumberland though I would not look forward to the winter travelling this way. I suppose everybody is suffering now though, if it keeps going the way it is I can see riots happening in the not too distant future. barca1, good luck in finding a job in the near future, I was in the same boat 2 years ago to this very day. Although I don't really enjoy the job I am doing, it pays the bills.....at the moment!
I wouldn't have been seen dead being delivered to school. My near neighbours kids are continuing to be taken to secondary school, 3/4 of a mile away.
It used to take me 3/4 of an hour to walk this same distance as I'd call for mates, play football on the way etc... Going to and from school was far to an important social event than being teleported instantly my means of a socially sterile car.
Started work in the building trade. His dad[our window cleaner] told us the staff agency in his home town [Gravesend] sent him to work on a site in Croydon' He does not drive, the only route therefore is train first to London then out to Croydon at the cost of £21 per day. I don't know how much a starter-builder can earn but I bet after tax etc he does not have much left to go Clubbing
