UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR WORK JOB/CAREER IS NOT GUARANTEED. DON’T TAKE THE RISK OF NOT KNOWING THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE OUT THERE AND HOW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE NOW
I have to say that I don’t know the various steps involved in Australia’s welfare disability pension system that well but I can relate to Job Search program when I was looking for work. This was back in 2010 (I think, that time was a bit hazy) You see, the government outsourced this type of contract to the likes of Max Employment and probably many other agencies. To receive unemployment benefits you had to report on a weekly basis to this outfit and show them that you spent time, money and effort to see 14 or 15 potential employers per week to justify your benefits. Guess who made the money?
Coming from a business that you built up over a twenty year period, building a brand that was known nationally as well as internationally, winning a bag of prizes for that industry, doing very well with property and income thank you very much, but then having the business stolen from you through the last project, crashing to the ground rolling into a dark hole, making pals with that black dog and then the icing on the cake, joining to unemployment queue which really opened my eyes and emotions to the real issues that front a very large portion of our population and what they must go through on a regular basis. Finding yourself unemployed is one thing, trying to prove that you are genuinely disabled (like in this film)is a whole new ball game. It’s a life of looking over your shoulder all the time, forever. Luckily I got my shit together and somehow crawled out of that hole.
Back to this film.
This film highlighted these absolute glaring inadequacies of the welfare system, but what infuriates me more than anything else is the incompetence of those people you are forced to deal with in a robotic way in order to get what really is entitled to you. You feel as though these department people are there just as numbers to bolster the department but disappointingly, nothing of any consequence ever gets done. They have an inbuilt distrust to all who get in front of them, invent situations and draw out peoples personal issues to the point where these unfortunates seeking benefits either quit or just die. It’s just too hard. Now of course I know that there is a percentage of people rorting the system outright. But that’s more to do with the police doing their job and the law being used in the way it should be. Overwhelmingly the majority of people just want a level of benefits which doesn’t take their dignity and self respect away. Encouragement to look for work should be fostered and not to be given meaningless tasks which are impossible to accomplish. The bulk of all of our taxes, goes into our welfare system in some way or another and as the work dries up, the less tax there is to go around. Now the government is playing with our tax systems, our savings and more concerning is our superannuation which pretty soon will be in the order of $3Trillion (yes with a T) Very tempting isn’t it.

I’m just having a little rant after seeing the movie I, Daniel Blake (don’t know if it’s based on someone real) who basically was just an everyday sort of a geezer, not after any handouts, just following his doctors orders but eventually getting screwed by the system with outlandish tasks and a stuff you attitude by those who get paid by our taxes. Sort of brought things back to me when I saw a lot of this go on when I was on the employment queue. You know I met some brilliant minds on this queue all with heavy accents from despicable places, yet appreciative and loving living in Australia. They all wanted to work – anything.
But it just goes to show that the majority of us oldies, those in their 50’s and 60’s who have been taught to be loyal to one employer and not to worry about any outside distractions, like a better job, using your imagination to get ahead, being your OWN boss, being in control of your own finances and destiny, in a way, only have ourselves to blame for not being aware of what is going on right now in our social and business worlds. We have to pull out our finger.
Now more than ever you just have to make the effort to look outside of that so called protective cocoon of your current employment. Nothing is guaranteed anymore not your job, your super not even your pension. The big question also is, who is going to employ you at 50 or 60 should you get the big finger pointing at you. Bunnings? I’ve heard they are overwhelmed with applicants so maybe a part time position, but could a part time job pay for that lifestyle you worked for for the last umpteen years?
