Jobs for us?

York Press: Jobs for us? Jobs for us?

CAN anyone tell me why all the new jobs in the area seem to be offered by companies out of York when there are so many York men who cannot get a job?

They have to use bicycles for work, which they don’t mind, but not when it is 20 and 30 miles out of York.

Mrs Merrick, Acomb, York.

Probably because business rates are so high in York and the land factories occupy is worth more for flats or housing? I'm sure that as soon as Royal Fail can get away with it they will move out of Leeman Road and sell the site for a huge profit.

I'm glad somebody else is noticing this. And the jobcentre do absolutely nothing to help... confidenc boosting days and CV writing and re-writing courses only do so much, and are pretty superficial when the jobs you can do all states "must have access to own transport due to location and lack of public transport"... where is the jobcentre to offer driving lessons to those out of work for more than 18 months? If jobseekers were supported into getting a driving license, they would then at the very least be able to go into a courier job - there's loads of those around - if not then get their own transport on finance to get them to and from the workplace.... surely in the long run that make better economic sense than to have hundreds of thousands of people sitting on the dole for 2,3,4,5,6 or more years simply because there is nothing at all suitable in York and they cannot afford to move location.
