    Default Jopbath

    This goes on a bit but attempts to summarise the issue which really needs highlighting . I got an interview for a CE scheme a few days back and was told I can not do CE because I'm on Jobpath which is further worrying as to the intent from government . I think they want to shift to a British style system of treating people on social welfare so badly they will somehow go away . Of course it wont happen all at once .

    Only 2 TDs have raised the issue I know of , Catherine Murphy of the Social Democrats (one of the reasons I am now going to SocDem meetings) and a Sinn Feiner

    The DDI splinter United People campaigns a lot on the issue

    Some black humour to distract us

    In the same vein if not the same exact story. This already happened in Germany and Sweden among elsewhere so be worried if you are long term unemployed . If there were a 'mini jobs' programme for long term unemployed like in Germany that would be something but that was just the upside of drastic cuts there .

    2003 story but gives an idea. The figures given are monthly rates so it means long term unemployed assistance is 'capped' at around €80 a week after 2 years . However additional stuff like rent allowance is easier to get AFAIK ;
    'the new benefit would be capped at €345 in western Germany and €331 in the east. A person may not be eligible to receive this second unemployment benefit if they have a working spouse or has assets exceeding €13,000.'
