Where ARE these jobs? The jobs you refer to are probably ones that require a specialised skill (e.g. managerial).

If there ARE plenty of jobs, then they are certainly not here on the Wirral, one of the WORST jobless blackspots in the UK.

I may get out of the dump in the new year. I cannot see any future for me here.
Hey mate, if you just take anything for now untill you get something better in the future.At least it will get you off the social. I take my hat off to ya if you can at least achieve that.
At least you want to work instead of sitting on your ass depending on benefits


I'd take my hat off to him too if he actually did anything. I defended and agreed with jobsneeded67 from the start of his threads (a few, all about similar things) but not ONCE has he responded to, or thanked, anybody who's given him good advice or the heads up on jobs available.

I think people are just fed up with most of his posts being rants about how shoit Wirral is and how nobody understands how hard it is.

He's been accused of being a troll which I thought was a bit harsh but I'm starting to wonder?
Totally agree with you.like i said he can get a job if he really tried. i did , and still on low wage and earn my keep.
I get the impression he is a young guy like myself and has alot going for him. Maybe like he said look further away from home.
some comments {example the one below yours}is very negative,

Most posts? ALL fecking posts!!!!

I think a lot of people are after specific jobs. You just need to be open minded in this day and age.
I was a shop manager then made redundent, I ended up a kitchen porter in a hotel in Chester, 20 miles away from home on a 24 hour contract. I hated it, the wage cut, the lack of respect from colleges and the abuse from management. I was back where I started when I left school at 16. I was there for 5 months until I got a job with Fujitsu. I was there for 2 years before being made redundent. Luckily I managed to get a job in Salford a week later.
Breaks are out there, u just need to grab them with both hands.

Ive read all these comments, and yes there are some who are very negative and i doubt they have been in continuous employment like me for the last 20 years.
But i must admit im not sure were most of you get the idea there are many jobs out there when there are cuts left right and centre or many business folding altogether.
My son was interviewed for a job back in feb, he got the job and was given a start date, then the start date was moved to the following week which was all done by e mail. Then by chance on the thur night he checked his e mails to find one from his new job saying the job was no longer, so instead of starting his new job on the mon he had to sign back on the dole. We later found out the company had folded, so he got a job and lost it all in the space of 2 weeks.

It took another 8 months of applying for EVERY job under the sun before he finally got one.

If you applied yourself in school and further education then you'll walk into a job.

Problem is these people filling the unskilled jobs.

I agree Morgy but a good edgamacation goes a long way. ( wish I'd applied myself in my younger years ) Too all the younger contributors on WikiWirral, it's not getting any better soon, so get stuck in.

raftl
Disagree Softshoes. I think it's going to be brilliant and as a younger contributer on Wikiwirral, fully intend to start my own training school.
'Granny's Good Bartering Techniques'

So many people will be doing voluntary work, then why not?
e.g. "You give me your ' Big Mac ' and I'll roast you a chicken".
"Where did you get your chicken from?"
" The same fellow that cut up the Big Mac".
"What did you give him?"
"Half a field to keep his cows and chickens in".

If you have nothing to barter..you starve. Therefore everyone would need to learn survival skills. Another training course.

It's beginning to build up already. Can you see? What do you think comes next?



Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
