The politicians are harping that young people leaving school should not claim benefit. What are they on about? National stores up and down the High Street, and local traders don’t advertise their jobs in the Guardian and the Times Educational Supplement. They give their jobs to the Job Centres. Job Centres post these jobs up on cards displayed for the unemployed to read. Young people leaving school (and even EU migrants) cannot find jobs unless they go to the Job Centres. There they must read the cards displayed; jot down suitable reference numbers; stand in line to ask for information about the reference numbers; then be told to sign on as unemployed; and then be screened by Job Centre staff on behalf of potential employers before they are told who the advertiser is. Unemployment Benefit is a benefit. Young school leavers must claim Unemployment Benefit if they wish to find local jobs.
