Yup, quite a few folk I know are out of work (me included) that have never been out of a job.

I'm now having to spend money and time to travel into Aberdeen to sign on for a 5 minute appointment at the JSA.

The government truly are a bunch of crooks.

Crap times :x

Yea, oil and gas is not in a good place. I've been working in the water and chemical industries for the last year or so
