    OP = Idiot.
    500k vacancies
    2.5 million unemployed.
    So OP, how do the remaining 2 million get jobs?
    Then why isn't it 2 million unemployed rather than 2.5 million?

    And the other 2 million can make their own jobs. What about dog walking? What about car washing?

    I find it really funny when you right wingers make that arguement the 'car washing or dog walking' how are they supposed to make enough to live on by doing that?

    I would find it funny, if it weren't so offensive, that you lefties think that it's ethical to rob hard-workers such as myself to buy drugs for people on JSA.

    lol. You really don't have a clue about the real world do you.

    1 - Are you really suggesting that casual dog walking or car washing will pay the rent / bills?

    2 - Surely you must understand that there is only a certain demand for those services, and that demand is probably satisfied in most areas? (hence why there aren't new "dog walking" start ups over the country)

    You do realise that most people on JSA are not druggies and used to be / want to be hard workers?

    There are still HALF A MILLION unemployed people for whom there are vacancies crying out.

    I'd have thought this was blatantly obvious, but you do understand that these vacancies aren't static, right? That when one job vacancy is opened, another is filled; as one person gains employment, another is made redundant? There isn't one continuum where the same people are unemployed and the same jobs remain open indefinitely.

    I think you're living in a dream land.
    You go walk your neighbour's dogs and see how much you can make... Definitely not enough for a living.
    "Make your own jobs"... wtf is wrong with your brain?

    +1 There is a problem with the OPs brain. Its the only reason someone could have that mode of thinking. To actualy have that mode of thinking you cannot be very smart!

    A very stupid statement.

    A few seconds thought and it would be obvious that the problem is these jobs are not in the places where people are needing job, some jobs need skills and experience that unemployed people in the area do not have and some jobs do not pay enough to make it worthwhile to do them.

    I think there should be an IQ test and a common sense test before people can join TSR to weed out the dense and the ignorant.

    What the OP doesn't seem to understand is that these vacancies don't stay the same. It's not a constant of all the same people being unemployed and all of the same jobs being vacant forever... A position gets filled, and another one opens elsewhere.
    Some of the unemployed people manage to fill these spots... But we're in a very difficult climate, with people still being laid off. If you don't have the right skills/qualifications for the job, you can't fill the spot.

    On the news there was a man saying, 'the foreigners work for peanuts'. But they can only for minimum wage ffs, which the last time I checked was hardly peanuts.

    These British people need a good kick up the backside to get a job.

    Your an ignorant fool. I've been looking for work all year, and only just got a couple of job offers - I was beginning to wish I hadn't given up my job to go to uni last September!
    I would have worked for minimum wage but I still couldn't find anything - so I did VOLUNTEER WORK for FREE.

    No, what I mean is in a geographical sense.
    Draw a line above London. Above the line there are no jobs, below it there are jobs.
    Then what you essentially mean is 'yes' then.

    What jobs? I'm over here in the states and I can say the same thing that lot of you guys are saying across the seas. It isn't just the fact that people are lazy; if companies were hiring I"m sure we'd all have one.

    I wanted to do dog walking when I was 24-25. Turns out that a) no-one was interested in my services b) it would be classed as self-employed and would cause me financial problems no end.
