Longest Dole Queue In The World

Recommended Posts

The National Association of the Unemployed wants to organise the longest queue in the world, running from the Congress building in Madrid to the La Moncloa Palace, home to the Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.

The unemployed are being called to assist on January 24 at 11am, and it is estimated that 4,500 will be needed to form the queue.

The main current demand of the Association is for a halt on bank embargoes, as many unemployed are losing their homes.

If they wanted to form a queue in this country it would have to be after 2pm and lay on Tea and Biscuits :D

Watched SKY this afternoon on this subject.

They interviewed one woman mid thirties.

She looked awful and ill. The worry had gone, the resignation of despair established.

One could not help feeling sorry for her plight. It was hardly self imposed.

I do hope that all those on here do not wish that on anyone.

Sure we have benefit scroungers and we all know who they are. But for many their lives are destroyed, mental illnesses develop, wider families are implicated.

Don't wish on others what you wouldn't wish on yourself, please.

I have been informed by a Spanish resident that being on the dole in spain isn't frowned about as much as in the UK. Its more common for people to stop working for 6 months+ claim dole just to have a break or to make it easier to study something new. Its a sense of entitlement, you have worked for a while you deserve to have some time off, the gov says you can have 2 years..
