Number Of Women Claiming Jobseeker's Allowance Reaches 15 Yr High

Recommended Posts

We get a lot of guff about, "audit trails", "networks", "frameworks", "compliance", "assessments", "assurance statements", "safeguards", "governance" and 100s of new acronyms, which all slow down the process of getting the job done, and adds considerable cost and time when one small detail is missed.

No wonder 30 profit driven big businesses signed a letter backing the austerity cuts.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/8447783/Number-of-women-claiming-Jobseekers-Allowance-reaches-15-yr-high.html

'The so-called claimant count increased by 700 last month to 1.45 million, including 462,300 women, the highest figures since October 1996, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Analysts said women were suffering higher unemployment levels because of public sector cuts where they tend to represent a higher proportion of the work force

Vicky Redwood, an economist at Capital Economics, said: “It reflects the job cuts in the public sector as women are vulnerable to these. And that is even before the public sector cuts have really got going.”

She added: “More women may also be looking for work as they need to help pay higher household bills.”

TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said: “While today’s unemployment figures are a welcome relief after a slew of poor economic data, not everyone will be sharing in the jobs cheer. Female unemployment has been rising many months.

“What’s particularly worrying is that these figures come before public sector job losses really start to bite.

“With hundreds of thousands of jobs set to go in local government alone – where three quarters of staff are female – there are real fears that rising female joblessness could increase in pace. '

Holy smoly,didn't realsie the females of the species predominated so much in the public sector.Does make you wonder why councils who are so right on about positive discrimination,get away with having so few blokes on the payroll.

Good pulling odds,3-1.

Both the above two are incorrect in there analysis it was discussed in the thread this morning when the figures were released.

Oh dear.

They have based the whole economy, tax revenue, house prices etc on two people working.

But now there aren't enough jobs.

Older couples will now have a child that can't even afford the fees to go to school while he's unemployed.

It's all kinda unravelling, isn't it.

Christ. Imagine the legions of entitled, brittle, incompetent clipboard wielding bints about to be let loose on the jobs 'market'.

Maybe they can all become each other's life coaches.

Or maybe, just maybe, the market is going to quietly but firmly inform them of their actual worth.

If women account for 75% of public sector employees, this means that they had an unfair advantage in the jobs market during the boom, with preferential treatment for the jobs that are more secure, have better pensions etc. than their private sector counterparts. Therefore it's only fair that they share the pain proportionally to that in a downturn.

You don't hear much about 'life coaching' any more.

I wonder why that is? Anything to do with people hesitating to pay someone £75 an hour to tell them to do the things they know they should be doing anyway?

Women have had an unbelieveable ADVANTAGE in the workplace for many years now, despite the wailing protests of sex dscrimination feminists.

As a man who wants equality for my gender I won't be happy until 50% of claimants are are made up of women.

There is certainly a nail salon/beauty parlour bubble , in this part of the world anyway.

+1

As a man, try asking for flexible working and see what happens.

Goodbye career.

Hunter gatherers. Ideally, man goes out to work. Woman stays home looks after home and family. All right, fair enough - no chance, it's not going to happen any more, is it. But it's swung the other way now. Seems men don't get a look in, sometimes. Schools, for example, are awash with women, especially primary schools where it is common for nary a single male to be seen, and unusual if there is more than one, out of a staff of ten or fifteen or twenty or more. If that was reversed, think of the howls of "discrimination". The feminisation of our schools has wrought havoc.

Women seem to loom large in the media as well - pretty, lightweight, twenty something clones who are so uncontroversial as to be bland, presenting weather or news and the rest of it, seem to far outnumber male counterparts. No doubt plenty of other examples.

But the women's lib movement got their wretched "equality" for women and now they can fight for jobs along with men in the work place. How nice for them. All seems like a pile of poo to me.

I can't help but wonder if this is one of the reasons for a lot of the trouble caused by young people in the poorer areas, with a high amount of single mothers. They come from a home with no male role model, and then go to school, and spend their formative years, without any male role models in school. By the time they get to high school, it's probably too late.

Which haven't happened "yet" afaik.

You can reduce government spending by sacking married female workers, as most will not be able to sign up on JSA, if you sack a married guy you have a higher chance he'll sign on.

...if you don't have audit trails you don't have financial control of the company, most companies can't survive without computer networks, while without compliance your business will be out of control and not fit for purpose ..... HBOS RBS and NR all had their governance queried....these and the other terms you quoted are not guff ...just all key elements of doing business successfully today..... :rolleyes:

The problem arises when more time is spent on audit trails and gaming the system than actually doing work. Some companies I have worked would be a lot more efficient (I suspect) with less time spent counting whose pennies are whose.

Primary schools are desperate to hire men.

If women account for 75% of public sector employees, sounds like local and central government need to be brought to heel using the sexual equality legislation, as women certainly don't make up 75% of the total available workforce.

Calling HPC's very own diversity consultant - Bloo Loo... :D

A lot of these jobs are part time and attract more female applicants.

Having said that, I have had a feeling for a long time that there is discrimination against men in various fields, including retail for instance.

It's a bit of a cancer, isn't it? Some broad was on BBC News this morning... her job title was 'feminist'... wtf!?
