  • Anyone who has any experience of the dole, the awkward moment when someone asks what do you do, the black despairing days and the build up of bills while your friends go out while you miss social occasions, birthdays, stag nights and the constant stream of rejections letters doesn't need a website ( who incidently use the wrong calculations) to know the anwer to that question.

    Take the ignorance elsewhere

    Edit: This smells like a cheap publicity stunt to sell his tax calc download which if powered by the same flawed mathamatical abilities is probably useless.

    Yeah its all his fault.




  • I like it. Another valuable website to give the ordinary punter some sound impartial advice!




  • I'm just surprised there's no advertising on the site.

    Good idea there's a calculator for everything else.




  • Job please Bob!

    Well said

    Oh, boo-hoo.

    Be glad you're getting any money at all.




  • I can't see why anyone would choose the dole over a job just for a few more quid. I used to have a part time job, until I got offered a full time job a few weeks ago. It wasn't really worth keeping with the cost of getting to and from it but it got me out of the house and broke up my week.




  • Why have one when you can do both like me, im loaded now:pac:




  • Oh, boo-hoo.

    Be glad you're getting any money at all.

    Be kind enough to direct yourself to my sig.

    That is all.

    Do you think im the owner of that site or something?




  • Daddy or chips????




  • Hmmm a job, or having to deal with the highly ignorant and condescending cretins parading as the social welfare? I know which I'd rather have.

    He at least has the right attitude and feels quite uncomfortable on the dole.

    The way people should be.

    But have no choice as there is no work for them

    Being on the dole sucks major big balls.

    Not at all, merely that the site owner is relying on bigots to take his site and perpetuate it in internet land for free advertising.

    You might want to consider that while you pull the hook out of your mouth.

    Nice.




  • Few times better working
    no surprise there

    Hey hold on a minute,i have no hook in my mouth,i just stumbled upon the site and i thought it would be an interesting topic in AH.

    No need to get up on your high horse about it.




  • That website doesn't even take into account additional work costs let alone commuting costs! :p

    +1 to what Mr Incognito says though. So many non-material reasons to stay in work regardless!

    Ah yes. AH - the last great bastion of objective debate, current opinion and informed discussion. Well, that's not what "yore ma" said :D




  • jobordole needs more questions. a mate of mine is better off on the dole because he lives in the boonies and doesnt have to spend €70 quid a week commuting to work but the algorithm doesntallow for that

    Also fuel allowance is not accounted for, and medical bills being paid out of your own pocket if you work.

    job or dole should stick to the day job (or dole)




  • Oh, boo-hoo.

    Be glad you're getting any money at all.

    Give over. If he ever had a job, he's paid tax and it's his money he's getting back now he needs it.
    I'd rather see it go to him than a load of lying Nigerians spoofing about asylum, frankly.

    I heard an interesting parable the other day which for me explains this spate of worker versus unemployed tension:

    An investment banker, a Daily Mail reader and an unemployed man are having some tea and biscuits together. They open up the packet and there are 12 biscuits to be shared. The bankers grabs eleven of them and says to the Daily Mail reader: "You better watch out - that doley scum's going to nick your biscuit!"

    TLDR - Keep your eye on who's really to blame. It ain't each other.




  • Oh and also... if I can get 200 quid a week working some sh!t job for a balding spastic or 190 quid a week sitting on my hole, eating lion bars and playing xbox which do you think I am going to do.

    FLAWED!

  • the calculator on that site is majorly flawed. it automatically assumes everyone is entitled to rent allowance which couldnt be further from the truth.

    even if the calc was accurate id call into question the legality of having a site devoted to encouraging people to leave their jobs en masse and go on the dole!

    given the current climate id say the days of living on welfare as a career are over anyways.
