The Government claims they have created thousands of new jobs…

Job CentreBut that really relies on a pretty loose definition of a job.

If you judge ‘a job’ by which you measure the level of employment at any given time as being someone in full time work (assuming they want to work full time) and who earns enough to not need to claim Working Tax Credit and who has guaranteed work (i.e. not a zero hours contract) – what do you think the true unemployment figure would be? Personally I think anything that doesn’t meet this basic criteria as far as I am concerned is not ‘A Job’ – it is a State funded employment scheme – and the unemployment figures are enormous.

Starvation wages does not in my opinion constitute a job by any sensible definition of the word.
