Surely, scroungers should be removed, wherever they come from.
Or are UK scroungers better than non-UK scroungers ?
Scroungers are scroungers what ever nation they come from
For a contracted period I ran an ordinary job club. We provided a very pleasant environment with tables and chairs for each member. Newpapers, computers, telephones if needed, writing paper and stamps. Also volumes of Trade Directories etc for members use . As well as warmth, tea and coffee and biscuits. Plus moral support and help with producing a CV and presenting themselves at interview etc.. It was a positive, welcoming place and I encouraged rather than disparage them. I watched them blossom, when they picked themselves up and realised their worth.
Now I will mention two anonymous members;
1) An Asian man in his mid 50's, who was an experienced sheet metal worker ***. A job he had done for a good number of years. He became redundant, but found a job which was a quarter of a mile further away from his home than his previous job. Both were within easy walking distance of home. He refused to take it because of this extra distance.
I didn't think much of his apathy, but he had previously worked hard, was still trying for jobs, so I kept him on
2) A strong looking white lad, a Brit, of 18 years. He had never really worked at all. He had been in the Club for about 2 months and despite encouragement, hadn't applied for a single job. I eventually told him that I was excluding him from the Job Club and would have to report him to the Employment Services. This was something that I did not like doing ... and only was forced to do on this one occasion.
He swore at me and was abusive, but left
Just a very simplistic example. The white boy was definitely a scrounger. Was the Asian?*** The Asians job has been changed for total anonymity, but he was a skilled worker.
