The only reason unemployment has dropped over the last 6 months is because of tus programmes, ce programmes and internship, all slave labour and all designed to hide the true figure of unemployment. Most of these programs last a year and offer no prospect of employment when completed, just back to the dole while the other batch head on to them, a circle of complete bull$hit.

    Read figures recently that illustrated that when you factored in involuntary part-time workers, those on Jobs Bridge and FAS schemes, Ireland’s unemployment rates are closer to 23%. The hidden unemployed in this country is a real issue. Hopefully some well thought out capital and infrastructure investment will start to address this.
