    As for the rest of you, do you seriously think that I and many others like myself, prefer to be blacklisted on the dole than working?

    Do any of you have any inkling of an idea on how hard it is to back into the job market? I really doubt it is the case.
    I think there are several labour markets and several barriers to entry into the labour market. And serious regional blackspots.

    But, if you are young, and low skilled, and in Dublin, there are jobs being filled by a lot of non Irish while their native counterparts lie up. Many are unemployable.

    Re-entering the labour market after kids is very tough and child care can mean the cost of leaving the house in the morning is 35k. That really needs to be addressed.

    As for fraud? Well, there are levels of that, and there needs to be a benefits cap.

    Have had to employ mainly Eastern Europeans whose attitudes and work ethic would put the lazy cheating Irish workers to shame ...not all of them mind but a very worrying percentage !

    I don't know about you, but to answer your general question, the answer is that for many, is yes.

    It's very easy to get back into the job market - one just gets up early in the morning and starts looking. Perhaps what you meant to say is that it can be difficult to get a job, especially if one has been out of employment for a number of years.

    The Eastern Europeans are only 'great workers' because they are desperate, once they get the hang of the system they are less likely to be wage slaves for the landlord class etc.

    The welfare state is one of the main reasons, if not the main one, that we did not have a revolution during the bollex acting post bailouts etc!
    Next time it happens (and it will!) as there is no slack left, the welfare state and the Afrikaner like privileges of the public sector lovlies will be tackled and there will be blood on the streets!

    By way of anecdotes, when their rights are established in the workplace after 2 years, many of them are as docile as any Paddy!

    It's not exactly quite that simple, also IMHO, if you have contributed over a long period and were basically paid and treated like shyte, you have the right to be very choosy!
