Unemployment is big business

I know this is stating the obvious but recently I meet someone who use
to work as a tutor for A4E. She said they made a lot of money from
people being unemployed, just from having people on their courses. If
they could get someone a job then the company also got a big bonus.
They would push people into jobs which they knew they would not be
able to do just to get the bonus. So what if the person ended up out
of work again, A4E got the money.

Also meet someone who started a social enterprise company in the IT
field. He had a genuine interest in helping people. He takes people on
who have been written off, they must be six months away from being
‘jobready’ ( not sure how they work that out) they train and then give
them a job at the end. He does not get any money from the gov.

Is'nt it the latter scheme that the gov should be backing?

Be suprised if the 2nd person you mention doesn't get any money from
the government.
Each jobseeker with vouchers is worth about £1,000. Very handy towards
wages bill or training costs.

Then there's the working neighbourhood fund (about 500 million pounds
a year) that is dished out by local authorities. Can be very handy for
businesses that take on jobseekers and train them.
Oh, and not forgetting the new scheme that came in last month,
guaranteed training or work for 6 months for all 18-24 years olds who
have been out of work for some time. Thats worth almost £7k for 6
months to a company each person.

Companies will likely be taking advantage of such schemes simply to
defray training costs if nothing else.
