This letter was sent out by the Moyross Jobs Club in Limerick to people registered with it. This jobs club is funded by FAS.
The letter is an advertisement for positions vacant in a British Army regiment, the Royal Irish Rangers who currently preparing to head off to another tour in afghanistan where they have already suffered many deaths & serious injuries.
When people registered as unemployed with the jobs club receive such a letter they are obliged to call in and inquire about the job in question. Otherwise they risk being cut off by the jobs club which has potential implications for their dole payments.
Is the FAS answer to rising unemployment to ship young people off to fight in Britain's latest war?
