A whole hearted fuck you to JSA.
I’ve been on job seekers allowance for a short while, not by choice. In fact I avoided it for as long as possible due to the fact that the government has a habit of screwing people alsodue to the fact that I dislike taking money from anyone for many reasons. In short I don’t find taking money from the government acceptable, I would rather have avoided it all together. JSA is a lethal cocktail of idiots and systemic failure. Yes I am pissed off. Here is why.
I was given, not offered, a job by JSA. This job was completely irrelevant to my qualifications. Now maybe I’m an ass, well no I am an ass but I didn’t attend school and college to work in an office. If I work in an office it will be an office of my choice. Anyway, meanwhile I had found 6 jobs relevant to my qualifications and interests which I am currently in the process of applying for. Despite my own efforts the JSA refused me my allowance. They are considering suspending my claim. Now I’m no math wiz but surely if I do not have money then not allowing me to have the funds I use to look for work is counter productive, am I right?
I look for work and do what is required of me, I attend on time and my claim is in no way false, yet I am treated as a criminal by a government agency who are full of idiots, foreign idiots and various other idiots. The agency itself is marred by systemic failure, bending the rules on multiple occasions however they cannot forgive my one error.
I have an african advisor with no idea of her job requirements who has examined my job searches two, if not three times now. If I made an error she could have corrected my mistake a long while ago had she been doing her fucking job. I walk to this place, a mile and a half, in the rain to be told that I’m not getting my allowance because they gave me a job to apply for which was complete crap. I love walks and even rain, its dealing with idiots that I hate. It is funny to me how the government represents some of the worst failures of humanity, not just the central government but also the smaller government branches and departments.
I go there every fucking week, arriving on time, I am polite, courteous, patient and presentable which is more than can be said for the majority of JSA claimants. Also I do not leave the building and put on my work boots, hopping into a van with some inbreds to do cash in hand work while I claim. Not that I care about the claimants, it’s the department of failure I am concerned with.
Anyways, yes I’m pissed off. If this post makes zero sense that is why.
A big fuck you to JSA and related departments.
I finally understand why people shout at them a threaten them etcetera.
As far as I’m concerned they deserve it for being jobsworth idiots.
Yes this is a shitty post but fuck it there’s 24 of you at most, half that, then half it again and I have 6 regulars.
It’d be nice to hear from you….
UPDATE: The coming wednesday I am being personally interviewed about the JSA’s service and I’m going to make them look as bad as I possible can. Karma much?
I’m happy I get to do this, something I actually look forward to!
