The Job Centre?

Postby danny » Tue Oct 09, 2007 11:32 pm

So I was at the dole office today and couldn't help wonder whether we should have something there? A wee leaflet maybe? A resident sex-slave? An Arse installation perhaps?

The idea is that volunteering is empowering and educational, it lifts people out of a rut when they've been unemployed for ages. I think there are loads of skills people can pick up around here. I've picked up a thing or two myself. Diseases though mostly.

i thought they hassled you for volunteering when you were on the UB40? At least they used to do that to me... maybe it was just me

i was in the job centre the other week for a being-on-the-sick interview and mentioned the forest to the interviewer who was most interested. they had mentioned a christian voulenteer centre in leith (big in their scene apparently, although i forget the name atm) but said they were always looking for related organisations to mention to people. maybe an official contact from the forest to the job centre regarding our volly opportunities might be an idea?

Not sure if this is incidental or not, but I have never met a nice person in a jobcentre.

I was gonna go on the rock'n'roll once as I lost my job and was skint. Walked into the job centre, and was hit by the smell of special brew and the sight of neds looking really pissed off because they had to get out of bed before 1pm to pick up their cheque and saw my future flash before my eyes. I hot footed it outta that place and was signed up to a temping office the next day and in work the next.

I'm glad the Job Centres are such rancid places as it gave me kick up the arse to go find a job....which was damn easy by the way!!
