Unemployment benefit for the employed




I've seen some poster ad around town recently, showing some grinning bint feeding a horse with her two kids. I thought it was advertising some petting zoo.

Closer examination revealed it to be a heavy marketing campaign telling single mothers (well, single 'parents', but how many are men eh?) how they can grab lots of nice taxpayer's cash even when (if) they bother working.

If you're bringing up children on your own and start work, we'll give you an extra £40 a week on top of your wages, or £60 a week if you live in London. We'll give you this every week for up to a year, tax-free. It'll feel like you're getting paid twice.


Yes, it'll feel like they're paid twice because they fucking well are! One 'wage' coming from us taxpayers.

I barely feel like I get paid once thanks to being taxed to the bollocks and back again, primarily to fund a load of worthless civil servant scum to sit around thinking up new and exciting ways to hand my hard-earned fucking money out to lazy fucks like slutbag single mummys.

If these single parents mothers are working, they shouldn't need benefits, should they? I suppose the government have finally figured out that most of these single mothers get knocked up to get benefits, so the only way to get them to work is to keep giving them benefits after they start work.

The ad I saw boasted of how such single mothers can 'treat their children' more. Hence the nice display of a woman taking her kiddie-winks to see the pony (how many single mums would do that with an extra forty-quid a week? Most would buy an extra load of Gregg's pasties, cigarettes and scratch-cards.) Why the fuck should these single mothers be able to 'treat' their children at taxpayer's expense? Why the fuck is it up to working, self-sufficient people - with or without children - to ensure the pampering of an army of bastards?

Of course, we know that if you're bringing up children on your own, going back to work could seem challenging. Which is why we have put together a Choices Kit for you.


Why don't they at least be honest:

Of course, we know that you slags hate the idea of working, hence you popped out some bastards before you left your teens, and after a decade of slouching around doing nothing productive and living shamelessly on other people's money, the idea of getting up before noon and doing some actual work seem like a real drag, which is why we've created (at taxpayer's expense) some worthless patronizing brochures and given it a fancy NuLab-NewsSpeak title, 'Choices Kit', to make it appear as if any of this matters.


Benefits for non-working single mums, now benefits for working single-mums.

No wonder people snort and laugh at this shitpot of a country.

When the unproductive learn they can vote their way into the wallets of the productive, the nation is finished as a viable entity. Nothing left but an easily manipulated mass, clamoring for whatever crumbs the political elite deign to hand out. It's a good deal for the elite because they're only giving away other peoples' money. The State can only "give" what first it steals.

Duncan, read through this web site. It is explains the elite's obsession with socialism and why they are obsessed with it.

Karl Marx said people vote for their wallets. I guess he was right about that and this proves it. What is the end result of this nonsense for a society? Simple, stick a fork in it, that society is done.

£40 a week paid to ensure a McLiebour voter. Seems a good deal to me if I were fatso Broon.

It appears that they are trying to give single mothers an incentive to work. Perhaps the alternative is much worse, like single mothers staying home and receiving much more than what is being offered here. 40 to 60 pounds really isn't much if you think about it. I'm guessing the amounts may be closer to $75 or $100 if this were offered in America. That isn't even much. This reminds me of a British game show I saw which featured a single mother who avoided working because she felt her daughter should be taught at home. If such an abuse of the system is common in the UK, I can understand the angst against any type of benefit.

Of course, the folly of Woman with an Opinion's statement is that they need an 'incentive' to work.

As if putting food on the table, a roof over one's head, and other basic necessities of life that one should provide for one's self isn't incentive enough.

For fuck's sake, of course they need an incentive to work, because the government's already taking care of the rest of their basic necessities. If you eliminated those programs entirely, there's your incentive to get off the fucking couch and get a fucking job.

I am amazed at how some on this board are so desperate to argue and fight. There is no folly in the statement. If such a plan is needed in the first place, there must be a problem where too many are collecting benefits instead of working (benefits that would be much more of a strain than what is being offered here). Lastly, I think this plan is ridiculous regardless of the motive. I thought that would be obvious to the readers...well...to readers who aren't constantly looking for a fight it's obvious.

It's hard getting a job these days if you ask me employers want way too much for basic crappy jobs.

I admit I am a 23 year old guy who ever since leaving college nearly a year ago I have been finding it difficult for 6 months to get any work. I went for some work experience recently and worked hard still they won't contact me to get my a try at the job. I know this is how things are these days but it still sucks. So yeah I am on Job Seekers Allowance right now.

How about government letting business owners get on with it without burying them in tax and red tape, hiring whoever can get the job sorted, and paying them a wage as set by the job market... or is that too simple?

The key these days is getting into the right field. In large cities in the US, male teachers are desperately needed and one could get a position very quickly. You don't even need the "required education" upon applying (they'll put you through school in NYC). Teachers are almost never out of work here. It's a hard job, but it's a job nonetheless.

YES. And then I could accuse him of molesting children. That will teach those men. Mwahahha.

Please someone hit me with a train.

Some things never seem to make any sense at all.
Successful men want to marry down. It has always been this way, always will.
Successful women want to marry up. It has always been this way, always will.

We are caught in a vicious circle here. Women have been told a huge pack of lies and they have swallowed everything.
Now that it is backfiring upon them, they will blame men because they are forced to live alone.
It's a choice that women are making: women have slept in the bed that was prepared for them by their feminist goddesses.

Nothing wrong with that.

They are free to do what they want.
Men also, are free to do what they want. It is the latter that women don't understand.

Why should men change their way? Just because women did? Ridiculous!
What can a career woman bring to a career man that he DOESN'T ALREADY HAVE?

I think that career women should do what men do: i.e.: marry down.
The last thing a financially successful man wants is a career wife. What's in it for us?
Zippo.
Intimidated? Where does that woman come from?
Women have been told lies, which they have believed. Now that the whole thing is back firing at them, they are told more lies, which they also believe.

Again, I see nothing wrong with that, provided they take responsibilities for their own lives.
If women insist on marrying up, they will have to accept polygamy. If they chose to believe that they terrorize men, they will have to accept the life they are preparing for themselves. They hate men anyway: so why do they complain? I do not understand.

England is turning into a complete shithole.

I say you and the rest of all the hard working blokes should leave that Blairscape for greener pastures, and just say: "Fuck it -let the radical muslims take it over. Goodbye England".

Let the femhags have them instead of you.
Then sit back and watch what wonderful delights await those bloated tarts as they experience the full impact of sharia law.

Only then will they realize how well they had it before.

Boy, some woman really did a number on you. So you want me to be shot, run over by a bus or train? Will you at least show me some mercy and wish that I die peacefully in my sleep? Now that you know I read your posts (of course you will not identify yourself) you can carry on...I know I will.

One of the wretched ironies of all of this pandering to females, at least in the US, is - if you are a single father, you're fucked. There aren't any special programs or assistance or people to hold your hand through life's travails and tell you everything is going to be OK. You're on your own from Day 1, and the feminazis are always waiting in the wings for you to fall on your ass just so they can cackle and say, See! Men are worthless!
