If you are unemployed, try getting a job to get you out of unemployment. The employers consider you unemployable because you are unemployed, so you remain unemployed.
What it really amounts to in too many cases is widespread age discrimination.
And these assholes in Congress want to RAISE the Social Security age? Are you freaking kidding me?
Even being more skilled doesn't necessarily help you, Ghayad found. Say he had worked for a bank before a six-month or longer stint without a job. "Even if I apply for the same position, you are going to prefer someone who is short-term unemployed with no experience," he said.
That suggests that even additional skills training won't necessarily be the key for the long-term unemployed climbing out of their predicament.
"There's nothing they can do to improve their chances. There's nothing they can do to overcome this stigma," Ghayad said.
In other words, they should just fucking die, right?
Remember, high unemployment is deliberate neoliberal policy to lower wages and salaries to the point where people will eventually make pennies a day. That's what these batshit crazy globalists want.
